030 – Bursting the Bubble

Bursting the Bubble

I couldn’t conceive a more suitable case
To describe why I’d never vote Tory 
Than watching our ministers leap to defend 
#classicdom and his Durham trip story

The country has followed instructions 
To the letter with all that entails
Often at tragically personal loss
As the common good had to prevail 

It brought out the best in our nation
A courageous and mutual endeavour
Though often at deep individual cost
We stood as a nation together. 

But today shows that that was a mirage
And that bubble has brutally burst
As ministers queue up to tell us 
That it’s ok to put yourself first. 

What message that sends to those grieving 
And who’ll live with decisions they made 
For them now to be told they were wrong to
All so Johnson keeps hold of his aide.
