The Cost of Power
Boris chases power across the shires of England,
Spreading propaganda from his rabid band;
Setting aside democracy as he perverts the very law;
Ignoring half the country and making everybody poor.
As the vulture of the USA waits to feast on carrion
We’re all worn into the ground with this interminable Brexit carry-on.
As Trump seeks to dominate by splitting up the EU
Bringing down China and loosening the world’s glue.
He’ll gobble up the bits and everyone will see
Where the power sits and who is making all the bucks
Because for the common people
This elite don’t give two fucks.
One day you’ll hear a little voice
Chortling as you’re out walking.
It’ll be Trump and Bolton
And just the cash that’s talking.
