Don't Mention the Pension!

Submitted by Janine on 10 April 2021 at 13:17

Now sit up, pay attention
They're coming for our pension
I'm feeling apprehension
I don't trust their intention

It gives me hypertension
This isn't an invention
- that's your misapprehension
Consider this dimension:

For if it's their intention
to raid our hard-won pension
or cut down their subvention
They're going to face dissension

beyond their comprehension
Because it's our convention
to launch an intervention
to safeguard the retention

of rights, not their suspension
We'll fight for the prevention
of any contravention,
attempted circumvention

It's no time for abstention
so quit your condescension
And lest I didn't mention -
Hands off our old age pension!
