Austerity Grips

Austerity Grips



Austerity grips with a vice the land

Pull together is the rallying call

Yet government takes away from us all

Our hard-earned monies with their evil hand

A throwback now to our Seventies life

When grievances - - poverty just dismissed

To the striking masses all did enlist

To demonstrate injustice and our strife


One hand they give yet take with the other

The rich stay rich the poor they just smother

Surely it cannot continue like this -- and

The M.P.s live in a world of their own

Even immigrants have just up and flown

This our country our green and pleasant land
