Poetry – A Populist Leader

A Populist Leader


What I want is a populist leader

Like Trump, Johnson and Bolsonaro –

A plucky little bleeder.


A man who will stand up for me

And be down with the people

So that we all agree.


A man who knows everything

Like how to fight a virus

And get the troops to sing.


So give me a populist man,

A man who can pull the wool,

A man with a plan!


Not just an opportunist or a chancer,

A psychopathic narcissist,

But someone with an answer.


What I crave is a real populist,

Not a competent politician;

A charlatan who’s lazy – really hit and miss.
