Miracle on Downing Street

by Mike Bell

St. Theresa knows
what is good for us,
she ‘Hallelujahs’ for votes
(The Mail prints the chorus).

She cleans the feet
of the blessed rich,
with her giving hands
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 and 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

TheReal.News is a search engine that has had the spin removed. We use sites that we have studied for some time and monitored for integrity and we don’t use sites that we have seen which either spin or lie their way to the front page. Everybody is biased in some way or they aren’t breathing, but Bias and Bollocks are not the same thing.

People that tell the truth are quite easy to find because they cite references and sources to back up what they say. The opposite is also true.
