Virtual Politics of the Internet

Come quick and join the Party, of the Internet!
it won’t be old and boring, it’s the latest you can get
just take a micro second and the mouse will click you there
for a virtual revolution
you won’t have to leave your chair

No leafleting or knocking doors will be required of you
just punch in your password, that’s all you need to do
no meetings, billboards, arguments
all so yesteryear
just one touch of the button
and your virtual world’s right here

Grandad raffled pickled onions ev’ry Friday round the docks
so that his workers party might raise its financial stocks
cent by cent a fighting fund they made accumulate
to help spread some ideas
aimed to smash the bosses state

Today that seems so petty, now, when funding just arrives
from smart rich clever people who don’t run bottle drives
who don’t need ideas either, just a faster band connection
so the virgin birth comes seconds just before the resurrection

So come on and join the party, quick
while it’s still cool to do
before it’s just another onion in the cyber stew
just half a micro second and the mouse will click you there
for a virtual revolution
you don’t have to leave your chair.
