Austerity - Poem by Daniel Bernard Kelleher

The country is out of recession
Our leaders would have us believe
The homeless are filling our streets
And some sleeping rough in the fields

They tell us our debt has improved
Unemployment almost a thing of the past
Dole queues by the day are shorter
But the figurers are not adding up

Ministers blowing their trumpets
Spinning us lies most everyday
The elderly the sick and the family
Suffered most by cruel austerity

Topic(s) of this poem: politics, weakness
