There’s a Real War on ‘Welfare’

There’s a real war on ‘Welfare’
That just keeps accelerating
‘Coz the poor they are a-hating
And the others they are baiting
Into thinking it’s unfair
To our boys and girls ‘out there’ –

Like the poor done stole their share!
And the poor sods on the battlefields
Must surely realise

That they also are the pawns of lies,
Because they know when they come home
The ‘Welfare’ war becomes their own.

And those above the rank and file,
Prey to political guile,
Know fine well the likely score:
The money’s not for troops, but
For surveillance, drones and cyber war.
