Big Society, Big Deal

Let us be a nice hopeful new nation
With few jobs and little inflation,
While the National Health
Serves to augment the wealth
Of a nice hopeful Big Corporation.

A decade of hope, aspiration
And suchlike will be our creation.
This welfare's old hat:
Just think about that
As you sit at your call-centre station.

A wonderful peregrination:
Be free of the state's machination,
And work till you drop
Or until we say stop,
Or trust in a wealthy relation.

The common folks' dull desperation
Must not damp our victors' elation;
As Georgie lets rip
For the big double-dip,
Rah rah for our great ConDem Nation!

    You ARE David Cameron in disguise, aren't you! Scarily true
    ...and this poem is, as word verification says: tandaic

    Very good! And a valuable corrective to this.
