The election: Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm Syndrome

By Michael Jarvie

We've been cheated and castrated
By a toff in evening dress.
His name's de Pfeffel Johnson
And he's serving Eton mess.

He's a racist and a scoundrel
And a homophobic loon.
He's a chancer and a coward
Who will dance to Donald's tune.

Then there's Nigel with his roubles
And his Russian wrecking crew.
He's a vulture and a huckster
Who'd sell the many to the few.

No-deal Brexit is our future
It's a cult like Heaven's Gate.
With a dose of phenobarbitol
We're on course to meet our fate.
