RIDE THAT OLD CYCLE

MSM push Downing Street narrative,
We can spend our way out of disaster.
Pandemic windfall savings rescue us
From collapse of retail economy.
Nevermind rampant viral variants,
Have to do our bit to save the market.
Can it work out? If we empty accounts?
I hear on Radio Four news today
Global inflation may gallop away,
Already copper, oil and lumber,
Resource prices rising beyond state control.
Create paranoia, bubbles will burst.
Wait with bated breath, boom and bust cycle,
Roars round bend, yet again poor take hit first.

Harry Rogers, In The Red Bedroom, 29th May 2021.
