Songs For Our Times? – Issue 18

THERE IS A GREEN BILL FAR AWAY

SET FOR A SHITTY FALL

WHEN THE YEN AND DEUTSCHMARK SOLIDIFY

IT DIED TO SAVE F’ ALL

——————————

TIGHTEN BELTS, TIGHTEN BELTS

AUSTERITY ALL THE WAY

OH WHAT FUN IT IS TO WRITE EDICTS ALL THE DAY

TIGHTEN BELTS, TIGHTEN BELTS

CAPITALISM HERE TO STAY

OH  IT’S FUN TO CUNNINGLY CARVE

THE ECONOMY WITH HENRY HOORAY

——————————-

I’M DREAMING LIKE A WHITE SUPREMECIST

THAT ALL THAT COLOUR HAS TO GO

ALL THESE THOUGHTS OF HATRED AND SPITE

AND THAT ALL MY ANCESTORS WERE WHITE.

———————————

I’M SCHEMING FOR A QUIET XMAS

THE ONES OF WARMTH AND A GLOW

AND THO’ COSTS BE HEAVY, AND SPENDING  SLIGHT

I’M HOPING THIS CHRISTMAS WILL BE BRIGHT.

———————————–

HOLLY HAD THE SCURVY

BECAUSE SHE COULDN’T EAT FRUIT

OF ALL THE ALLERGIES IN THE WORLD

SWEET HOLLY’S GETS YOU DOWN

SHE CANNOT TAKE THE SUN

IT MAKES HER WRITHE AND GROAN

BUT AT LEAST IN THE BRITISH ISLES

SHE SEES ALL BUT NONE.

EVEN IN THE WINTER

WHEN THE SNOW HAS FALL’N

IT MAKES HER SKIN VERY IRRITABLE

FROM HER FEET TO HER CROWN

BUT HOLLY FOUND AN ANSWER

SHE HOPPED UPON A PLANE

AND SHE SETTLED DOWN IN HELSINKI

HER ALLERGIES ARE ALL GONE.

——————————-

SO HERE IT IS AUSTERITY XMAS

AND NOBODY’S HAVING FUN

THEY’RE RUINING OUR FUTURES NOW

AND THEY’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN

ARE YOU BUYING A SMALLER TURKEY

DREADING E’EN A SMALL SNOWFALL

ARE YOU WORRIED THAT THE NEXT JOB TO GO IS YOURS

SO HERE IT IS AUSTERITY XMAS AND NOBODY’S HAVING FUN…
