So the tories won
and they think the war is done,
that we will beat a retreat,
accept the web of lies they spun
to inflict a shock defeat.
Who am I to advise or criticise?
Just a working guy
with words to say
and the tears of my peers to cry.
I have no power,
no wealthy friends
to bail me out in my hour of need
but I mean to raise awareness
how we expect respect and fairness,
and will fight on to the end
for human rights you’d take away.
Some insist the vote was fixed.
But the odds were stacked
with your dirty tricks
executed by right wing pricks and hypocrites
who control our great free press
like quicksand to the truth.
Yes, the masses were duped,
but we’re not all stupid
and we’ll be watching you.
There’s only so much we can take
don’t make the mistake of thinking
our tolerance is unshakeable.
Strip one more bit of dignity
from the old, the sick, the underprivileged
use austerity to trample us deeper in the shit
and you’ll find there is a lesson to be learned
about how injustice burns,
and the price you’ll have to pay
when the worm has finally turned.
Our forebears fought for what we’ve got.
We voted, and we lost.
But heed these words.
We’re nowhere near ready to sit idly by
and watch you steal the lot.
