Socialist Sonnet No. 48

 Red Light


The prime minister’s trading principles,

But, to be a leader of the Tories

He or she must flaunt and sell themselves,

And everyone knows what a whore is.

Perhaps be solicited by Labour?

Their leader might be a better looker,

Yet it’s foolish, surely most would concur,

To simply swap a whore for a hooker.

What seems on offer may look seductive,

Offering a good time in full measure,

Capital pimps the state so you’ll believe

Your satisfaction is their pleasure.

But, look again, there’s no mistaking it,

Whatever they say they are faking it.
