Poetry – Zero Hours

Zero Hours

Happy to create zero hours and scurry off with the loot
With their yachts, penthouse suites and Armani suit.
They are quaffing their champagne and stashing cash abroad.
Struggling to feed our kids, food being more than we can afford.
What sort of country have we made where the wealthy get it all?
Where the poor deserve all they get and should be made to crawl?
They really believe they deserve it as they are better than the rest.
Through Eton and Cambridge – for privilege creates the best.
Whatever happened to fairness? To compassion, justice and care?
When greed and selfishness take command we find it isn’t there!
