Poetry – Dupes

Dupes

The heroes and the thinking people – they’ve all gone away!

They’ve left behind the morons – now we’re all gonna pay!

They believe everything they read in the bloody Daily Mail,

The Sun, the Express, Telegraph and Nigel Farage as well!

We’re morons! We’re morons!

We’ve forgotten how to think!

We’re morons! We’re morons!

It’s a wonder we can blink!

Dupes

The BBC are going around the country stopping various members of the public to ask them about Brexit and the election. They either deliberately pick out complete morons or edit the intelligent responses out.

The people they select seem to be uniformly ignorant and stupid.

Yesterday they picked on a pub in the north of England. A bunch of old fools were sitting round a table and came out with the most moronic tosh I have ever heard. They could not see why we just could not pull out of Europe overnight without any understanding of the partnerships, collaborations and complexity of international trade relationships. They wanted our borders secured but had no concept of the massive checks, tariffs and complexity that this would entail.

The biggest stupidity was one imbecile who thought that we’d do very well because we are British; we used to rule half the world.

I felt like nutting the guy.

We never ruled half the world. The people who ruled half the world are the ones who live in the big mansions, the Stately Homes, and penthouses. The likes of us were either signed up in the army and being used for expendable cannon fodder, or working twelve hours a day, six days a week, in the factories. We did not even have a vote!

Those people still rule the world!

They set about taking over the world so that they could exploit the natives and strip the assets. All that wealth from the colonies went into the pockets of the wealthy elite so they could live in their mansions with their myriad of servants and lavish lifestyles. That enormous wealth did not filter down to ordinary people. Our conditions were appalling. We were every bit as exploited as the natives of the countries we conquered.

The Tory Party was formed by that wealthy elite in order to look after the interests of the wealthy elite – and that is what they do. Over the last ten years they have systematically robbed the poor to give to the rich. They have cut social services and public services while giving tax cuts to the wealthy. They have enabled the wealthy to use tax loopholes to avoid paying taxes.

It is scandalous.

This poem is aimed at that ignorant, ill-educated segment of society. They should read a bit more of our history!

I'd like to hear from you...
