Most right wing politicians, to their shame,
Look around for fresh scapegoats they can blame,
For all of their mistakes they’ll never name,
They treat peoples lives like a silly game.
All their fake promises that never came,
Media headlines that read the bloody same,
No traitor perpetrators in the frame,
Pile on more celebrities with fake fame.
Cowed opposition sounds so very tame,
Agree to make more weapons that will maim.
Use their laws to undermine each new claim,
Their smiles more poisonous than aspartame.
New Labour and Lib Dems both sound so lame,
Ain’t it time to light a different flame?
