An Anarchist’s Dream
Age Group: Adult
1. I sat enthralled to see the sight -
The hurly-burly and the spite
That pass for honourable parliament.
The bedlam, ire and noxious bile
That issue from that chamber vile
Where sits our mighty government.
2. To think we chose th’unruly crew
To steer our nation - makes me spew
This elected base autocracy.
For such display of manners crass
Would ne’er be brooked in school or class
Where seethes puerile discourtesy .
3. In calmer hours when hangs the deep
Of night and all are fast asleep,
Sit th’illustrious members still.
There two or three drone to the rest -
The twenty-one with heads on chest
Who doze throughout the private bill.
4. Is this the host who muddle on,
Take ill decisions while they pawn
The assets of our nation great;
And plunder middle England’s wealth
(The taxes freely giv’n) by stealth
And subterfuge of thieving State?
5. And all the while the poor remain
A downcast brood scarce worth a name,
While rich are seen to bloom and flower.
It counts as little what the swing
To Left or Right or Centre wing,
'The Government' remains The Power!
6. The British people aye must be
Bereft of true democracy,
Till full accountability
In Westminster be brought to bear
On all th’elect who claim to care
Yet waive responsibility.
7. Will e’er the dream be realised
When bold Guy Fawkes is canonized
To sate each avid anarchist?
Will e’er be seen the glorious sight -
Each parliamentary parasite
Hung by the neck - they’d ne’er be missed?
8. Beware we all this trait’rous scum
Who bid all alien invaders come
To violate our British State.
Our long dead heroes, rank on rank,
Must rouse and curse appeasement frank
Which hastens a calamitous fate.
9. Though victor in two mighty wars
‘gainst foes our Britishness abhors,
These machinate to pound us down
To nationalism’s dark nadir
By thrust of legislative spear
To lie despoiled of throne and crown.
10. Lay trust in the veracity
Of Tory party strategy
And set those with professional bent
To direct Britain’s destiny -
A team with true proficiency.
Let’s privatise The Government!
