April Fool

1 Apr

I wrote a bit of poetry before called April Fool in my anger at the welfare ‘reforms’.

April Fool

April the first,
That was the day,
They decided to make the poor pay,
this is no April fool, but the act of men cruel.
Yes we all have cuts,
To the safety net of the have nots,
While the millionaires toast to their taxes being cut,
The first cut indeed the deepest,
Not for them the foodbank queue, or the bedroom tax that’s due.
To those believe that joke so twisted, so cruel,
who still believe we’re all it it together,
You are truly an April fool.
