Democracy

 

We did not vote
to dismantle
the State.

Did we?

We did not vote
to privatise
the NHS.

Did we?

To turn injuries
and illness
into profit for
the already rich.

We did not vote
to turn schools,
colleges, universities
into businesses.

Profit-making for the already rich.

We did not vote
to create mass
unemployment
and despair,
at a stroke.

Did we?

We did not vote
to punish the poor
for existing.

Did we?

We did not agree
to reward corporate
thieves lavishly.

Did we?

We did not vote
to abandon
children
young people
students
old people
the sick
the disabled
single parents
families.

Did we?
