Oh, Iain Duncan Smith,
Being bullied by “spin, smears and threats”
Aw, boo hoo
Distressed by gratuitous scaremongering, are we?
Pressed your sensitive button, have they?
Feeling threatened by the consequences of
Making “desperate and unsubstantiated” claims?
Has your penchant for the “biblical” been usurped?
Ha! Do you see now, how the irony works?
Why so weak?
Can’t you cope?
Stiffen those sinews: where there’s Life, there’s hope,
Try harder. Pull yourself together, man.
More smiling; less shuffling
More effort, please.
Do you need a hand up? Try one of those
“Series of highly questionable dossiers”
You cling to. They’re the new hand out,
Available at all recommended public service outlets
A team of scapegoat therapists will draw you up a plan
Happy to strip you of any reasonable doubt;
Coach you, what you must and can
And medicate you meek, messiah man.
