The 'Ession' Session - Poem by Greg Costello

A symptom of a national recession,
Is widespread and collective depression,
Employees from every profession,
Just surviving, but at what concession.

There's a justified wave of aggression,
'Tward the immoral bankworld transgression,
The piecemeal government intercession,
But nothing in the way of confession.

So with continuing fiscal compression,
And an upsurge in house repossession,
The country since Brian Cowan's accession,
Has suffered a quite seismic regression.

Now the Celtic Tiger's dispossession,
Has stemmed the money-making obsession,
But those in charge don't give the impression,
They're in touch with our poorest's oppression.
