BRIBING THE OLDIES WITH GOODIES! (weekly poem)

BRIBING THE OLDIES WITH GOODIES! 

The Institute of Economic Affairs has accused the Chancellor
of the Exchequer, George Osborne, of cynical electioneering
after he announced the issue of extra Old-Age Pensioner bonds

The Chancellor is sucking up,
To wrinklies for their vote;
In a quite sneaky ruse to keep,
His government afloat.

As geriatrics are the ones,
Who’ll vote the Tory way;
Along with anti-immigrants,
And the now married gay.

The I.E.A.’s passed judgement on,
The Chancellor’s crude scam;
A government that is TODAY,
Providing folk with jam!

Now as the oldies in their plots,
Rub fungus off their Fronds;
At least they know they’re quids in with,
Their Old Age Pension Bonds!
