Sewage on our beaches
government beyond our reaches,
history did not teach us
and now they cling like leeches,
feeding off the poor,
slamming shut the door,
hunger comes with a roar
and they say they’re sticking to the law.
Crisis costs will rise,
Will they hear the dying sighs?
Will they finally raise their eyes?
And free them from wealthy ties.
Money goes into their coffers,
and kindness will make offers
of tins, beans, tea against the scoffers
and cars driven by chauffeurs.
Shivering inside from all ills,
chemist can’t get the right pills.
Climate crisis worsens and kills.
Who can save us from their selfish wills?
