Undemocratic Glare Looks Yonder... (ok then, ugly)

Undemocratic Glare Looks Yonder….
( ok then - ugly)

This is number ten donation street,
on Britain’s benefit to rich people square.
Where men of greed so often meet,
hidden, from democracy’s glare.

A street where all our billions flow,
to men of wealth, title or influence.
Blown to foreign accounts like snow,
without worry or mere consequence.

People on this street always blame,
shirkers for taking our cash.
But their chums have no shame,
they’ve just got a bigger stash.

Honest people can’t live here,
it’s a street without a heart.
Got be on the fiddle my dear,
picking public pockets for a start.

This is also where the PM lives,
that’s Prime Money mover to the rich.
Cutting up our taxes with his spivs,
making sure we’re left not a stitch.

Then they say we have our votes or voices,
that democracy is listening to what we want.
While they charge off in their Rolls Royce’s,
off round the world on another free jaunt.

This street is close to the house of commons,
that’s code for a rich persons jobs fair.
Corporations pop in to employ their good sons,
though it’s ours we need permission to go there.

This street has a culture that preys on our fears,
saying we’re not educated for self governance.
That only men moulded to be ministers or peers,
can lead the people of this land in merry dance.

I have little time for these parasitic pricks,
who make us fight to vote for a living hell,
If only we’d break free from doomsday politics,
care, then help each other to start living well.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Wrote this in response to the breaking news, that two of our senior mp's or fat pigs, your call, have been caught trying to get their snouts in the trough again.
Editing stage: 


Ohhh I love this, from beginning to end! Spot on!

Defence Ministers meet President Obama + others here in Cardiff last year - stayed in the best hotel in Britain "Celtic Manor". ( commandeered the whole of the top floor, which cost thousands per day. ) playing rounds of golf. Army tank's strewn all around the place, with no go air space.

You speak the truth - I wish this could be read out on BBC News!

Love Mand xxx

Thank you Mand for reading and commenting, i too wish it could be read somewhere the public might hear it. But the BBC are helping those involved to keep the status quo, they don't do anything that could threaten their licence fee charges. Love Roscoe...

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.

So true - it's all manipulation and propaganda, we get told what they want us to hear.

Love to you

Mand xxx
