Control Looks Like Chaos – Friday 30th August 2019

Control Looks Like Chaos

‘we’ actually meant ‘them’
not you,
we take back control
was not inclusive
more, exclusive
your membership, elusive
have never had to earn their cash
happy with moats
and an offshore ill gotten stash
actual problems,
well, leave them on a latch
now, here we are
led by the man,
who promised we would leave
but like so many,
does not actually believe
it is self centred opportunism
an offering to their greed
try to solve something
they conceived
but offer no plan for
have any of us
ever been less sure?
there is a back room, front room,
side room, parlour revolution
this is out solution
this is our only end conclusion
this is our mighty reveal
an end to this sorry shabby phantasm
