LIAR IN A WHITE GOWN

Hancock has his half hour in a lab gown,
War declared on obese covid victims,
Health workers slapped in face with one per cent,
After the claps, the rattles of the pans,
We expect heroes to be tret better.
Paltry sums for those who give us their all,
Hancock, white gowned, as faux as faux can be,
Trumpets his victory delivered by
Those workers he insults with every word.
Soon road map will lead through gate to “normal”,
Beaches will fill with holiday fakers,
Throughout summer freedom ramps up and up.
No places left for crap leaders to hide,
We know they’ll take health workers for a ride.

BUDGET?

Level up, level down, red wall, blue wall,
Tax up, tax down, oi lend me half a crown,
Put a levy on, hoover up some crumbs,
See the CEOs twiddling their thumbs,
Extend the furloughs, varnish over cracks,
Bring back two for one, pork pies and Big Macs,
Keep Matts’ health contract, no-one has read it,
Deny his big lie, forget he said it,
Big up the vaccines, claim a victory,
Consign the mistakes into history,
Tell all the people first thing in your head,
Soon life starts again, don’t mention the dead.
But the truth is, none of this is over,
In fact we’ll find it’s only just begun.

Harry Rogers, in the Yellow Room, 3rd March 2021.
