This Be The Controverse

Submitted by Janine on 1 January 2015 at 14:04

A rewrite of Philip Larkin's 'This Be The Verse':

They fuck you up, Conservatives
They mean to, and they really do
They take away what progress gives
And add some extra spite for you

But they were fucked up in their turn
By titled, landed, privileged fools
Who bathed in wealth they did not earn
And raised their high-born kids to rule

They hand on misery to man
And woman, piling grief and pain
So get them out soon as you can
And never let them in again
