Homage to a Government

This year we cannot afford
the pay of nurses and doctors.
Hospital wards stay open as
beds fill corridors with patients,
waiting for a pair of bloodshot eyes
to find their problem.

But we’re all in this together.
The sick and the infirm.
We will keep calm and carry on,
pretend that we are strong and stable.
Ignore the reports and
come together. As a nation.

This year we cannot afford
the pay of nurses and doctors.
We have wars to fund,
and bombs to drop abroad,
and tax havens to support,
and natural resources to exploit.
