Nick having kicked it off with this in the comments to another post:

"Kim Jong-Un
is obviously a wrong 'un
Could he ever really fill
the boots of Kim Jong-Il ?"

Anyway, I counter with -

Won't dance the haka
More's the pity
For Manchester City

I do not doubt that the witty and inventive folk who show up here can better my opening effort.

Baroness Vadera
Couldn't have been clearer.
They say that she went rogue.
Now Lord Lamont is back in vogue.

Baroness Shriti
Made hay in the City
She can spot a green shoot
But prefers a Brown root

Barack Obama
is surely no farmer.
He is more bothered by bond yields
than productivity in wheat fields.

OK, contrived, but better than my alpha test whihc used 'llama'.

The Baron of Hartlepool and Foy
seems to be a nice boy;
but I'm told that whenever he starts to talk, he's
inclined to tell enormous porkies

(The only way to dignify the following monstrosity is to put the stress on the penultimate syllable of each line.)

The injustice makes us all writhe:
That poor old Bruce Forsyth,
Though an entertainer right good,
Is again denied a knighthood.
