First it looked like everything would change,
we’d tax the rich and allow the poor to eat without feeling guilty.
Children climbed trees and parents sat underneath
awaiting the miracle of rebirth.
Horses grazed peacefully
and riders took a breather.
Then, Oh horror!
It all went down the pan again;
another five years of fat cats getting fatter
and belt tightening for the rest of us.
They’re lining up to chuck themselves off the cliff!
Oh Misery, Oh Horror.
