Ten Years

Of austerity
Of paycuts
Of council cuts
Of understaffing
Of worn out nurses
Of exhausted doctors
Of waiting to see GPs
Of poor mental health care
Of care home closures
Of cuts to schools
Of overworked teachers
Of benefit cuts
Of universal credit
Of too few houses
Of too many homeless
Of increasing rents
Of not enough police
Of police station closures
Of fire station closures
Of this cruel and unnecessary austerity

but also Ten Years

Of increases for MPs
Of bankers' bonuses
Of multinational exploitation
Of tax cuts for the rich
Of the rich getting richer

but still
we voted
like turkeys

and now we have
Five Years
of the most inept
Government we will ever see.

PLEASE DO NOT LET THINGS RETURN TO NORMAL!
