They keep it in their family
These spivs who take the piss,
Gonna give his dad a knighthood,
Or so the papers say.
Modern faux aristocracy,
Behaviour as if kings,
They ignore Machiavelli
Don’t understand his Prince.
They wallow deep in privilege,
Take all of us for fools,
Don’t care that we are watching them,
Whilst they break their own rules,
Nicolo knew well what happens,
When we are unhappy,
The more those Johnsons fill their boots,
The further will they fall.

Harry Rogers in the Melon Sorbet Room, 8th March 2023
