This country’s going down the drains
NHS, Police and trains
are all fragmented or downsized,
the army is no longer prized,
the air force and the navy too
are in a similar to-do.
Supply teachers prop up the schools
to stop us from producing fools.
Lorries taxed up to the hilt
the government admits no guilt
for not spending on the roads
do they think we’re thick as toads?
Tax on spirits, wine and fag
makes us travel and to drag
our cars off to the continent
to purchase tax-free embibement.
If government would take a hold
be courageous and be bold
raise N.I.C and use the cash
ensuring hospitals don’t crash.
Increase the tax on petrol more,
then all the drivers can be sure
that everyone pays their fair share
for using roads that always wear
regardless of who’s ever car,
be they from home, or from afar.
Give the public trams and bus
this will help to stop the fuss
of getting to and from the shop
when traffic jams make all cars stop.
Why is it that we must give money
to other countries – it seems funny
while poverty is here at home
our government can find us none.
Is it all to just save face?
It’s certainly a damn disgrace.
The police force needs much more support
so they’ll succeed and report
a reduction in the country’s crime,
safe to walk home at night time.
Why are the trains forever late?
With too few seats and dirty state.
Perhaps we should now look to France
or Germany – learn to enhance
our railway system so it works
without the bungles, jolts and jerks.
When will Armed Forces show their hand
and help their people to expand
their minds with proper education
to give these folk qualification
that will equate them to the others,
like their foreign country brothers.
The E.U gives our fish away
and stops men earning pay each day.
throw away our fruit and then
buy it all back in from Spain!
What is happening to our Realm?
With this cabinet at the helm.
We cannot survive with this collection.
Roll on the next general election.
