ramblings and things

I was with Arthur's pickets when


They killed Old King Coal


Eventually leading to


Ex miners on the dole


Saw Thatcher's Big Bang


Which led to rogue banks 


And even greater swelling of


The unemployeds' ranks.


Saw Blair and his cronies


Wreak their own form of harm


But at least they did it with 


A certain odious charm.


And now today


Look who we've got


Cameron and Osborne


The worst of the lot.


I'll still be there 


Next election night


Too many died 


To give me that right.


But I've decided 


I'll spoil my vote 


Writing on my ballot


This little note


All of the politicos of


Whom I've ever known


Can't even be trusted 


As far as they're thrown.


You've sold off the silver


The pewter as well


May you dishonest bastards


All rot in hell.


It won't do any good but


At least I'll have had my say


And, as Sinatra said,


I'll have done it my way.
