Canto CCIV

As I was about to concede defeat
on finding the right word to rhyme with bullshit,
I sat back and switched on the TV set

and caught a bit of Georgie Osborne’s budget.
The rich will get a tax break of 5p
for every pound! Come on, we all must hoof it

to Hampstead, to our glorious City
where all those dirty tents have been torn down
and raise our begging cups towards the sky

and wait for all that wealth to trickle down.

    It ain’t the tax rate for the rich that gets to me, it’s the bloody tax avoidance.
    If we all paid the same rate but paid all of it, that would be fair.

    What is the name of the sonnet book with polka dots on the cover…you read from it once.
