Miracle on Downing Street

St. Theresa knows
what is good for us,
‘Hallelujahs’ you sing,
The Mail prints the chorus.

She cleans the feet
of the blessed rich,
with her giving grip
on their privatised bits:

She’s touched The Trump,
held the hand of ‘God’,
and now she is saying:
‘Come and buy the lot!’

And on Election Day,
perhaps in 2022,
when she’s won again,
against the too few,

you might turn round,
look back on this time,
and regret the miracles
you left behind:

the medicine, the doctors,
the freedom to move,
the care for the elderly,
the schools improved,

the future for kids,
ours without privilege,
the rights we had –
to stand up ‘n still rage.

When the state that blessed us
is sold for ‘our good’,
you’ll have no one to trust,
‘cept St. Theresa’s rich gods.
