Of ducking and diving and duck houses too!

A lovely little poem, found on the website of the Scottish Senior Citizens and Unity Party.

EXPENSES GALORE
I want a floating duck house
I want to clear my moat
I need to mend my tennis court
That's why I need your vote.
I have to build a portico
My swimming pool needs mending
My lovely plants need horse manure
And the Aga needs much tending
A chandelier is vital
Mock Tudor boards are great
My hanging baskets won awards
And I've earned a tax rebate.

I need a glitter toilet seat
My piano so needs tuning
Maltesers help me stay awake
And my orchard must need pruning
I could have said the rules were wrong
And often thought I should,
But somehow it was easier
To profit all I could.
The public really have to see
That rules are there to test
And at defrauding taxpayers
We were doing our very best.
The Speaker of our House has gone
Our sacrificial lamb
But the public are still watching
As our pockets we all cram.
What do the public want from us,
Those vote wielding ingrates?
They really should be grateful
To be financing our estates.
The message is so very clear,
(We're merely learning late)
That the British way of living well
Is to rob the bleeding state. Anon.

Mornin' Arden (As we say here in the South):
A delightful little poem and how it describes the situation we in the good old USA face with politicians out for their welfare--not ours.

Happy blogging...

I imagine the poem could fit in with any politician. After all, there are plenty of chandeliers in those governors' mansions!
