Poetry – Austerity

Austerity

 

Austerity has done for me, we’ve never had it so bad.

With food banks and poverty, only the rich feel glad.

Capitalism creates inequality as the country’s wealth is drained

To off-shore tax havens oversea, as social cohesion’s strained.

The government is overseeing a system that is corrupt

The wealthy have brought it into being, slowly, not abrupt.

But they saw themselves re-elected, despite all that they have done.

Leaving the country so dejected while they cavort and have their fun.

A number directly profited from the mayhem they have sown.

They should have muzzles fitted and never be allowed out alone!
