World Gone Crazy


The world has gone crazy
They've got it all wrong
Too many of the lower orders
Are living far too long.
These days there really  are
Far  too many proles
A.I and robotics can easily
Fill so many of their roles.
I blame the N.H.S for not
Doing what they're really needing
Experimenting on the proles to extend
Lives of those of wealth and breeding.

These days it's not so easy
As it was in days before
We can't just send them off
To fight a useless war.
Instead of providing money for
More bayonets, bullets and tanks
They're frittering it away on
Medicines and  food banks.
And the lower orders are getting uppish
Don't seem to understand their situation
As dullard expendable servant class there
To serve the elite of this Great Nation.
 
At the end of a normal working life
Lower orders didn't used to ask why
Just accepted their lot and
Quietly crawled off to die.
Yes the world has gone raving mad
In the past  when Britain was Great
People knew their proper place and
We didn't need a silly Welfare State.
Yes, the world has gone crazy
They've got it all wrong.
Too many of the lower orders
Are living far too long.
