Don’t do the cheese sandwich, that’s what Ann said,
She’s totally bonkers, out of her head.
She’s no idea what it means to be poor,
How when prices rise income falls through floor.
Turn central heating to bare minimum,
Cut down toilet paper to wipe your bum.
Have you got problems when you pay your rent?
Don’t worry, move out and live in a tent.
Can’t afford holiday? Easy, don’t go.
We’ll all learn through Ann’s hard way, don’t you know?
Just cut your cloth to accord with your means,
Until that day when you can’t buy baked beans.
Watch Ann as she laughs, like Samuel Smiles,
Roll on that day we put Tories on trial.

Harry Rogers in the Red Bedroom 18th May, 2023.
