Socialist Sonnet No. 30

 Business Advice

Become a friend to the Prime Minister,

Who will be always open to offers

For contributions to party coffers,

Which are definitely never sinister,

Just free expressions of philanthropy,

Though the tax breaks are not to be ignored,

Then serve your queen and country as a lord

In the ‘other place’, where you deserve to be.

You must, of course, eschew publicity

For all of your largesse and selfless acts,

Quietly fulfilling government contracts

The electorate do not need to see.

But, if people find out more than they should,

Just insist it’s all for the public good.

D. A.
