Reformation


When this Corvid crisis is over
There has to be Social Reform:
We just can't expect things to
Return to their pre crisis norm.
All those essential workers
Daily risking their lives,
The security of their families,
Their children and wives,
To try and keep things going,
Keep society on track
Until the lockdown has ended
And we get normality back.

Many of those are working
On Minimum rates of pay
Which has got to change
Come crisis over day.
There's talk of a medal to
Recognise all they've done,
Recognise their hard work
When this fight is finally won.
But, you can't feed on medals or
commendations from the Queen.
Let's have something lasting
With results that can be seen.

Close up the tax loopholes
Take away the benefits of evasion
From those companies that operate
From their offshore tax haven
Reform this unequal society of
Selfishness, grasping and greed
From each according their ability
To each according to their need.
When we've managed to enable
This necessary social reformation
Only then will we be a real, not
Just Lip serving, Christian Nation.
