Covid Enquiry UK


They watched it march across Europe
Leaving chaos in its wake
Seeming to have no realisation about
What could be at stake.
Allowed freedom of movement
Across all of our borders
Seemed to have no conception of
Coming disruption and disorder.

With the death rates rising
Hospitals jammed and blocked
National Health workers overworked
Stressed and shell shocked.
Two hundred and thirty thousand deaths
With many more long term disabled
And now the. Covid inquiry shows
People were classified and labelled,

Older  folk's deaths considered
A reasonable price to pay
To ease financial financial crises
And keep the economy under way.
They lied and they cheated
Treated the public as fools
As they regularly and selectively
Broke many of their own rules.

They dished out our money
In very dodgy contracts
Many of which just happened to be
Awarded to their social contacts.
The enquiry still proceeds but
It's revealing some very tawdry stories
Though why on Earth we're surprised for
It does concern the actions of Tories.
