Spads excel at theft of Jeremy’s clothes.
Trawl through long grass where lies manifesto,
Kicked there by Sir Keir in forensic fit
Of pink, Blairite, neo liberal pique.
Almost fell out of my bed this morning,
Radio Four news reader announces,
Without a hint of jaundiced sarcasm,
That Schapps is to take railways back into
Public ownership, immediately.
Franchises have failed. Privatisation?
A gargantuan Thatcherite mistake.
Public transport now totally vital.
Expect to see more Corbyn policies,
Dragged out of ditch by bereft Tories.
Harry Rogers, In The Red Bedroom, 20th May 2021.
