Labour, New Zealand’s oldest
political profession
mine shaft
to shagpile
inexorable procession
“Don’t go on strike – just help get us elected!”
or :
“We can’t do anything – the problem’s
worse than we suspected!”
A century, those hollow mantra served
the suited smarmy cynical deceivers well
watching them smirk today, I wish I did believe
there is a hell
