Rhyming Polemics

The New Enlightenment


 We’re living through a second brutal dark age

With renewed bigotry, superstition and terror.

And if you thought we’re on a preordained, exponential path of progress

Then I suspect you might be making a fundamental error.


Since the collapse of the twentieth century experiment in socialism

With equality and global brotherhood as its imagined creed

We have succumbed to the ideology of individualism

Which turns out to be  nothing but a fig leaf for corporate greed.


The natural dialectic between cooperation and competition

Has been cynically twisted in favour of the latter

Never-ending wars between regions and religions

Divide and rule, while the elites grow grotesquely fatter.

Jeremy Corbyn The Criminal

Blair and Bush led the West to an illegal war against Iraq

And a quarter of a million Iraqis directly perished in the inferno.

Yet Jeremy Corbyn is deemed to be the criminal

And their attacks on him continue, both direct and subliminal.


Anglo Saxon banks both sides of the pond recklessly speculated with our money

And tens of millions subsequently lost their homes and livelihoods.

Yet Jeremy Corbyn is deemed to be the criminal

And his policies are declared dangerous and abominable.

The distinction between refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants

Is as repulsive as racism itself.

The very essence of humanity is migration

Nobody wants to be left on the shelf.


Our descendants all originally migrated from Africa

In search of food and a safer place to live

Those that would make criminals out of migrants

Commit a crime that is impossible to forgive.

Corbynomics: TRWNBT

There’s a man going round who’d rather jaw jaw

than carelessly set off a nuclear war war.

But they call him a threat to national security.


There’s a man who’s opposed to austerity

whose alternative shows a great deal of dexterity.

But they say he’s a threat to the nation.


There’s a man who wants QE for the common people

instead of mindlessly pump-priming the capitalist steeple.

But they say he will wreck the economy.

Heroes are people we know nothing about

I should know, I’ve followed a few in my time

Heroes are substitutes for I’m not quite sure what

And we follow them without reason or rhyme.


The usual suspects have been up on my wall

 John Lennon, and Lenin and Mao

Up on the pedestal was Marley of course

With Karl Marx as the sacred old cow.
