Life in illusory democracy,
Where minds are blown by falsification,
And crowds line streets for aristocracy,
Is hell for majority of nation.
Where criminals openly join police,
Sewage runs daily into our chalk streams,
Children are taught to pursue golden fleece,
And only knobs are free to pursue dreams.
Loan sharks and bankers win public plaudits,
Deemed more important than those who clean up,
Fraudsters ignore environment audits,
Cultural vultures strut as they preen up.
Out on our streets some march for election,
Whilst others call for blonde resurrection.
Harry Rogers in the Red Bedroom 3rd November 2022.
