Poetry – Not in May

Not in May

May is not for May,

May is for June.

Come the summer

She changes her tune.

Ineptitude, incompetence

And deceit.

Lying through

Her very teeth.

A one nation party

Who hammers the poor?

As austerity bites,

Incomes go through the floor.

Arrogance and elitism

Are bred into the blood,

As they trample the rest

Of us into the mud.

The Tories created the problem

And helped it along,

With belligerence and stubbornness

They got it all wrong.

Now we’re wallowing in a

Right Tory mess.

Promising us nothing

And giving us less!

Opher 24.5.2019

Once again I have to listen to some female Tory Prime Minister telling her lies.

She loves the country – which country? Which people does she include in the ‘one nation’?

She’s been working for us all??? Really???

Certainly she’s not been working for most of us – not the poor who she’s been hammering throughout her tenure. Not the public servants, the nurses, teachers, doctors, police, army, social workers, youth workers, librarians, carers and council workers who she has robbed. Not the immigrants who she has blamed and harried. Not the ones out of work who have been cut to the bone. Not the homeless out sleeping rough. Not the ones using hostels and soup kitchens. Not those waiting in A&E. Not those murdered on the streets.

So who are included into this ‘one nation’? The bankers, the business magnates, the wealthy who shove their money off-shore? The celebrities? Or is it the media chiefs who have been pushing them like mad?

One Nation – I spit!!!

I'd like to hear from you...
