By Scott Bailey © 2013

The bankers, the police and politicians
laugh at us in their vaults of gold.
Shock and anger and bile!
Such arrogance we behold.

Headlines! Headlines! Headlines!
We MUST have an inquiry!
Heads must rolls, we must have scalps!
Weeks and weeks of fury.

We will not suffer the injustice any longer!
Oh! There’s a royal baby due.
Wait! What? Conkers have been banned!
It’s health and safety gone mad!

What can you do with a shrug?
