A Touch Out Of It

When they leave office
The damage done
Out to a private consulting firm
Or to lie in the sun
They’re congratulated by colleagues
On a job well done
In maintaining the status
The quo, yes indeed
Propping up the establishment
Of incompetence and greed.
Whilst the people they’ve governed
Are in ever greater need
Heading to foodbanks so their children can feed
Led there by out of touch politicians
Who only really care
About power and money all corruption and greed
Fulfilling their ambition taking from others in need.
