Socialist Stanza No. 11

Going Through the Motions


Face to face across The Commons

MPs snarl and point fingers.

But, is party rivalry real

Or posturing? Doubt lingers.


Principles are quite flexible,

Need to say what’s expected,

Even sound quite radical if

It helps getting elected.


“I want to make a difference!”

Or so the candidates claim:

Yet, whoever garners the votes,

Most things stay largely the same.


LibDem! Labour! Conservative!

No matter which of them win,

A change of party maybe, but

The government still gets in.
