Bushu Suru! - A Limerick

There once was a leader named Bush,
Whose stomach began to push.
On Japan's PM's lap,
Caused a diplomatic mishap,
In history, "bushu suru" made all of them shush.


This limerick refers to the following historic incident in Japan:
George H.W. Bush Sr. (1924-2018) threw up in the lap of the then Japanese Prime Minister on 8 January 1992, an incident that gave rise to a new word in Japanese: Bushu suru, meaning "to do the Bush".
