Slurred

5live

Trained by the press
to slur ‘Socialist’,

to spit out the word,
to deny the left vote,

Murdoch breast-fed you
for many decades,
so you repeat the mantra
‘bloody unions’ again,

those ‘bloody unions’ –
which gave us dignity,
those ‘bloody unions’ –
gave us all you see:

Return to your sofa,
switch on Sky News,
accept the status quo,
and get rightly-screwed.
