A Poem

Inspired by Ian Drury and the Blockheads

There aint half been some lairy leaders
Shady scoundrels, stupid scumbags
There aint half been some lousy leaders
Rotten rascals, vicious villains

Are you a blockhead?
No?  Why then be led
by the nose and suppose
that those who smirk and lie
and narcissism personify
know what's best for thee and me?
A leader’s decree might suit
the cowardly petty bourgeoisie
but dialectic materialism
should teach us that
we do not bend the knee
for any Tom, Dick or Harry
calling themselves leaders
who are really silly bleeders.

When O When their Waterloo?
“Ye are many -they are few!”
