Where in the foggy state of politics
is the misty figure whose job is – to
swarm over our crucial credibility?
Each step of disastrous politics,
each step of disastrous climate ,
each step of callous dealings
increasing the pace of poverty,
drives us further and distant
from our path of democracy,
the common good and so they
laugh at those who think –
What do they gain who ply
their putrid trade of corruption?
Paying accountants who aren’t
hesitant to open other pathways
to islands; whose economies rely
on those monies. And tax free
isles punish the poor – who get
less and pay the bankers’ bonuses,
and the wages of those who spurn
them hugging their hungry wallets;
No regretting! letting things stink!
and they laugh at those who think –
Who benefits when markets crash
as befits our failing tory fed land?
While people cry, children stumble
to school to chew their rubbers or
nibble on precious pencils, waiting
for a basic lunch that is shrinking.
What is this government thinking?
Why punish hungry, skinny children?
Why cruelly tether Universal Credit
while blind, mindless leaders feast
at banquets and leave them the least?
