Poetry – Death by a thousand cuts.

Death by a thousand cuts


Driving out the immigrants.

Kicking out the nurses.

Dumping all the doctors.

Counting all the hearses.


Not needing the carers

Sneering at low pay

Bin men and veggie pickers

Sent on their way.


Giving all the tax cuts

To wealthy corporations

Hammering public servants

Right across the nation.


Inviting private companies

In a dive to the bottom

Hens come home to roost

Whole system’s rotten!
