Hello to you all, it’s been quite a long time hasn’t it? I’ve been meaning to put something up on here for a while now, I seem to be coming back to myself and starting to feel that I have a contribution to make again. This is an old poem, written around the time the Health and Social Care Bill was passed, but I felt that as I’ve not written anything new for a while it would be acceptable to bring up something from the past. Besides, it’s new to you. Call it what you will, including shit, which it probably is.
Guiltless wretches on the TV
Whilst past inaction burns shame into me
Rage at everything I see
And hate displayed innocently.
Harnessing the mass of dreams
Lives imagined soothingly seen
Stolen by thieves greedy and keen
Oh political ambition is a villainous gene.
Your life is the sum of your choices
Not the myths of the market forces
Lies fed to your brain have run their course
So you let profiteers spend the public’s purse
They blame you for their greed and their mistakes
Distract you by stirring up tensions and hate
Betray the duties of secretaries of state
Abandon the people to the hell they create
The next five years will be grim, but at least I can complain about it on here where no one will listen. Also, apologies for forgetting how to format, but like I said, it’s been a while!
