Dear Harper, this is sub standard, hardly a limerick. This kind of light verse only works when it follows strict rules. You know that of course, poetry buff. Let me give it a try. Papadopoulos cannot be procrusted into a limerick. Or may be:

Papadopoulos (George) from Greece

Exploded to fame in a sneeze

We just knew the bloke

When he went up in smoke

A truly impressive demise!

Not 100% though.

Another possibility is a paraphrase of the shortest limerick ever (‘There once was a young man from Verdun…’):

‘There once was a young man in office….’

Friend of life and beauty and foe of spoilers of life and beauty. Golden marriage. Grandfather. Pianist and micro poet. Dutch, European.
