Kid the people
once too often.
Tramp your mantra
of a new dawn
in the minds
of the broken.
Change their perception
with repeated calls
to arms.
Our NHS needs saving.
Our country,
from addicts
and immigrants.
Overhaul the welfare
with a wink.
Kiss blown to
silent stakeholders
comforted by
2974% ARP
In an alleyway
in a shinier part of town,
landing on their feet
the fat cats survive
yet another life.
