Political Economy

Politicians talk of the economy

They talk in a special way

That people now believe

That the political language

Is designed only to deceive 

And simply has one aim

To baffle the general public

And leave the politicians free

Free to suck the coffers dry

To feather their own nest

At the ordinary taxpayers expense

Politicians will accept no less

Politicians talk of the economy

They claim its for everyone

It’s because they’re really selfish

It’s for themselves that it is run

The one thing that’s for certain

They’re don’t talk of the economy

For the likes of you and me
