Competent Cons

We are the Competent Cons!
Guardians of your right to aspire
to live within our democratic manifesto.

Oh, see how well we govern!
Hail and praise!
Be all upstanding for
sound judgement and efficiency!

But, mark, you:
do not question our authority.
Just trust us. (Please…)

We said we’d fix the thatch –
Er – and, apart from that,
the rest is strictly need to know
and so must be restricted
to the leadership because
the brightness of our future
has been balanced on
our long-term economic con –
sorry – plan.
It’s a plan,
we’re just making up
as we Ponzi along
for as long as we Tory well can.
