REFERENDUM ME ARSE
The wealthy sip their lattes
On Hampstead’s cobbled streets
The new Fabians still bemoaning
‘Nature’s obstinate refusal
To make the rich innately superior
To the poor they are forced to greet’.
They still care more for the moral high ground
Of progressive liberalism
Than the lives of working/non-working poor.
Those leafy lanes that once sheltered Marx and Engles
Miliband and Foot is now a Tory enclave
Forever England only in the wealth that it can wave.
American financiers in pink shorts and baseball caps
Have long since replaced the poorer Jewish emigrant
Which once gave Hampstead its artistic liberal slant.
