Get Shot!

Back Home Up Next

Conservatism reigns, it seems,

And Thatcherism too.

But is it really suited,

To the likes of me and you?  


Inflation's down, interest rates are high,

The bosses think it's fine.

But what's happened to our industry?

It's gone into decline!  


  We cannot really see the truth,

Because of North Sea Oil,

Which may provide the revenue

And bandage up the boil!  

It foils our attempts to know the truth,

Is our great past beyond recall?

Because lads, when the oil runs out,

It's curtains for us all!  


We'll not regain those halcyon days,

Of craft and expertise.

Instead we'll all be much reduced,

To buying Japanese!  


A vast expanse of nothing,

Up to our ears in debt!

Unless we get shot of Conservatism,

Because it hasn't happened - yet!
