TURN THE PARTY INSIDE OUT

Turn the party inside out
Flush those lefties down the drain,
This is what they’re all about,
Bring back Tony Blair again.
Nevermind illegal war,
Dubya pacts and cluster bombs,
This is what they’re really for,
Rebuild New Labour fiefdoms.
Let the housing market rip,
Wrap up warm in union jacks,
Occupy ground from UKIP,
Sell their soul to right wing hacks.
There is no alternative,
Once more party battle cry,
Mandelson and Kinnock live,
No red clouds in clear blue sky.
Throw the unions to the dogs,
Wear business suits, shoot a cuff,
Write in Sun, on Tory blogs,
Spin Ayn Rand like Call My Bluff.
Outside I deplore these ghouls,
Who tricked us with PFIs,
Again wouldst take us for fools,
Watch out for fake alibis.
On the left we’re mourning still
The Corbyn interruption,
I’ll not be back, had my fill
Of careerist corruption.
