Labour Pain

How they cease to be of any relevance so quickly

is the question that is not considered

by those sifting through the debris

Held back by poor headlines

Gulf war, no money left, banking crisis

spin, spin, spin.

This country has no appetite

for socialism, sadly.

the white van man rules.

it would have helped

to oppose the government.

Instead, you lay down

and as you wait for the killer blow

you point fingers at the past

at each other

rearranging the deck chairs

as the boat is sinking

oblivious, oblivious, oblivious
