Credit Where It's Due

Some people know what it is worth.

Some people can now buy fresh fruit.
Or keep the heating on for another hour.
Some people can get a decent present
for the kiddo's birthday.
Or a coat when winter comes in.
Some people don't always have to make an excuse
when their mate invites them out.

A Tory student burned one
in front of a homeless person
while wearing a white bow tie and tails.
And the government gave
one point eight five billion of them
to a test-and-trace fiasco
that didn't even lower infection rates.

Some people know what twenty pounds is worth.

And some people don't.
