The Curious Case of the Gove in the Daytime

The continuing absence of Michael Gove is raising eyebrows. It’s the biggest mystery since Cotton Eyed Joes origin and destination. I decided to investigate. In verse, obvs.

When into view he did not hove

The whereabouts of Michael Gove

Became a complete mystery:

Was Michael G now history?

No sight, no sound, no press, no briefings,

That’s not the way he tends to leave things.

We watched for days, without a sign:

Had Govey withered on the Vine?

His lack of visibility

Was there (or not) for all to see –

For someone of such Tory salience

T’was rare to go without surveillance.

As time went on the rumours grew,

Of who’d done what to whom – who knew?

Had Cummings had him taken out

And buried ‘neath some roundabout?

Or was the answer much more simple:

He’d taken vows and donned a wimple?

Dear gentle reader, as I write,

The minister’s still out of sight,

Perhaps he’s plotting sweet revenge,

Or making plans to steal Stonehenge,

Or maybe he’s just out there prancing

And set to be on “Strictly Dancing”?

About captainlimey

Captain Limey is the alter ego of a mild mannered idiot. He can also be found on Twitter, either as @CaptainLimey or in his new guise as a purveyor of Gangland Mummy Porn in @50ShadesOfKray. Despite a magnificent costume, specially created for him by his mother, he has no super powers, unless you count the ability of his skin to eat through metal, given enough time. This has led to the buggeration of several watches of his acquaintance but has not thus far proved harmful to other lifeforms. The Captain hopes you will enjoy his blogged musings and forgive the occasional rant against the world at large, and idiot dictators in particular. They really get his gander up.
