Only A Donkey Would Deny Housing Crisis - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Yes John Key has done it
opened the door to poverty
which he and his government;
have imposed upon countless
underprivileged defenseless
Yes John Key is proud of it;

yes home ownership's at its lowest
level in New Zealand for 60 years
John Key has sold off cheap state;
housing to fund building for elite
supporters of greed National Party
In Parliament today Key said, 'There isn't

a housing crisis.' Yes people attention please!
There isn't a housing crisis for John Key's
millionaires living in their brag mansions;
never forget greed Johnnie Keys will not
be happy until they have squeezed every last
cent of profit they can out of the poor, but;

they will happily walk past the homeless
without a glance, preferably discarding us
the used up poor like old wasted cardboard;
boxes blown into corner of a disused abandoned
car park. J Key ridicules Greens' housing policy
to defend his stake mates board game Monopoly!
