Former London Mayor Boris Johnson may have just reinvented the poetry slam at the cost of Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Also a current U.K. Parliament member, Johnson snagged the top spot in the Spectator's "offensive poetry competition."
We're not going to repeat the whole poem here — suffice to say Johnson rhymed that Erdogan was sowing his wild oats with a certain cloven-hoofed animal.
The contest was in response to what happened to German comedian Jan Böhmermann — who read a satire about Erdogan on TV.
As for Johnson, he also was rewarded the equivalent of about $1,400 for his latest limerick. He was reportedly shocked that he was even entered in the contest.
But come on, Johnson. You can't call Erdogan a "wankerer" and not expect to be entered in an offensive poetry contest.
