Asses dressed in ermine
The law is an ass dressed in ermine robes
The ass is guided by the government monkeys
Who wield the whip of parliamentary statutes.
The disabled, who store medical equipment
In their spare bedroom, are to be evicted
To go into smaller unsuitable accommodation.
The minister who introduced the Bedroom Tax
Will probably be knighted or given an honour
At the expense of the evicted disabled tenants.
The law is just the strong arm of the government
To do the governments will at the expense of the
Disabled and poor who are just trying to survive.
