    Default Political Satire Poem: "Haste to the Wedding"



    I always love to post a bit of political satire in rhyme, and the forthcoming FG/Lab marraige is like a gunshot marraige that just wont work.

    But haste to the wedding anyway, we'll wake up with the hangover and the bill for it!!!!


    Haste to the Wedding

    Its haste to the wedding, haste to the wedding
    The day it has dawned that all have been dreading
    The best clothes are out the news it's spreading
    Its all systems go and haste to the wedding.

    Fine Gael she is blushing as the pregnant bride
    Labour Party the groom to stand at her side
    The Sinn Fein as proud parents look on in pride
    Their day for the party they will not be denied.

    Well they'll make promises and they will make spin
    Of the great things that they'll do when they get in
    Minimum wage reductions reversed when they win
    They'll make gamblers pay for economic sin.

    Its haste to the wedding, we'll all go in style
    We wont be surprised if they don't last the full mile
    We'll keep paying our taxes to keep them in style
    And seriously doubt is democracy worthwhile!

    Deadly - lovely bit of music too. A good anthem for GE 2011. Nice to see we are going to have a PW Poet Laureate for the election campaign.

    Stanley looks to be doing well, given enough transfers he could shade it. Result for ULA not as good as expected, but all support is appreciated, and the Dumpleton fiasco set us back a lot.

    Time to build up locally... :-D
