The DUP Blues – a poem

I wrote this a year ago and it still says it all. It could have been written today.

(BTW – the photo I took of the stained glass – why did all those guys in biblical times go around wearing fishbowls on their heads?)

The DUP Blues

 

We’ve got Davies and Rees-Mogg paving the way.

We’ve got Boris and Fox and Theresa May.

They’re all driving the car towards the edge of the cliff.

We’re all speeding over with a bang and a biff.

 

I’ve got the DUP Blues

From my head to my shoes.

We’ll I’m voting for Corbyn

He’d better not lose.

 

With got holes in our roads and the roofs of our schools.

We’ve got nurses on breadlines because of these fools.

We’ve got no police on the streets and cuts to our pay;

A hard Brexit looming and no hope of a say.

 

I’ve got the DUP Blues

From my head to my shoes

We’ll I’m voting for Corbyn

He’d better not lose

 

In the land of perpetual austerity it is all still the same.

They can’t find a single penny to change that sad game.

Our teachers and doctors are suffering great pain.

While the greedy old bankers are still counting their gain.

 

I’ve got the DUP Blues

From my head to my shoes.

We’ll I’m voting for Corbyn

He’d better not lose.

 

I’m moving to Ireland where the roads are now good.

Put the kids into school in a gleaming neighbourhood.

They’ll have champagne with dinner and caviar with tea.

Paid for by May, and the likes of you and me.

 

I’ve got the DUP Blues

From my head to my shoes

We’ll I’m voting for Corbyn

He’d better not lose

Incredible that there is no money for the nurses, teachers, police, council workers, socials workers, doctors or courts but just when the Tories need to bribe someone in order to stay in power there is a big money tree.

 

All us ordinary people have austerity while the bankers and executive have big pay rises and multimillion bonuses.

 

The DUP with their bible-bashing flat-earthers now hold power. They’ve pocketed a cool billion. All they have to do is vote as they’re told. They can call the tune. If they choose they can bring down the government.

 

Who said politics is about ideals and the will of the people? It’s about power; it has always been about power.

I'd like to hear from you...
