‘’ Equality Is What We Need To Achieve ‘’


There must be austerity the millionaires say,
We’re afraid there is no other way,
The world economies are in decay,
In it together they’d have us believe,

Soup kitchens being set up to feed our poor,
Tightening our belts is the only cure,
The future for some is so unsure,
Some will be left to grieve.

Unemployment again on the rise,
It’s now time the workers opened their eyes,
Austerity to the rich just never applies,
It’s our pockets they always relieve.

Our money being used to prop up banks,
Greed and corruption prevalent in their ranks,
Ten million pounds for a funeral no bloody thanks,
It’s all lies and deceit that they weave.

While we all struggle they still earn,
We really need to show more concern,
When in Gods name will we ever learn?
Their aim in life is to deceive.

The fact of the matter is there is no doubt,
It’s the laws of common decency they flout,
You will never see them going without,
It’s time we gave them the heave.

As the rich get richer you can guarantee,
They’ll continue saying, nowt to do with me,
It is up to us to set ourselves free,
It’s not us but them who thieve.

They give millions to charities just as we do,
A fact they miss out on and it’s ever so true
They get generous tax relief unlike you,
Never believe in what they perceive.

As we go hungry they get fatter,
Eating caviar from their solid gold platter,
Their opinion of us is we don’t matter,
Are we really that stupidly naïve.

It’s we who make that lot millionaires,
Yet for us there’s not one of them even cares,
If we could only stop ourselves buying their wares,
Their lifestyles they’d be forced to leave.

We’re a third world country in everything but name,
The rich in our nation do not feel shame,
Despite the fact that they are to blame,
It’s our dignity we need to retrieve

Without us their paymasters they’d be on their knees,
In a very short time they’d be feeling the squeeze,
If we started to cough they would soon sneeze.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
