Treasure Island

Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)


G Twenty Governments Selected Victims


G Twenty governments
no job recovery policy
bail out bank debt cause
bail corruption banker case

British banker public misery
equals grand 20% British
youth discard unemployment
in Spain public sector workers

sit on privileges
minimum wage
fails to favour enjoy

G Twenty governments
deny poor workers fair wage
bankers stole GDP cake

leaving workers no crumbs
workers no rights to equality
no jobs future esteem utopia

no green policy
15% gain employment
2% of GNP equals

15% employment gain
2% less than bankers got
tax payers pay out banks

tax payers pay out privilege bank jobs
teachers nurses care givers sliced up
British pay cuts tightened target belts


GDP (abbreviation of) gross domestic product

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
