SLAM ON THE HANDBRAKE

Tyres scream on cinder strewn Tory racetrack
As machine executes a handbrake turn.
Not quite a complete donut but almost.
Glazed, unapologetic, ghastly grins
Punctuated by explosive silence,
Leaderene Mark Two destroys her debut.
Maggie’s bastards are back in Birmingham.
Growth discovered on Chancellor’s sphincter,
Now lanced, enables bullshit to flow free.
Broken backed economists are called forth
To babble on across rock strewn airwaves,
Laud entrepreneurs, praise profit mongers,
Proselytizers for their own theories,
Their words destroyed by Borgen style U turn.
