What was that about then?
the millennium?

do you feel you were cheated
by the promise of a future?

We got refugees
and we
welcome them,
not for Christmas,
but
for the millennium.

We got more beggars
and
not all of them
choosing that lifestyle

We got dial a doctor.
chiropractor
and they
factor in
to
the millennium thing.

and when we got settled in,
them bastards started
the dismantling,
frantic in their haste to
lay waste to
any good there may have been.

I’ve seen the writing
where
it used to be
until they pulled
down
the factory?

I think we also got
dial a doom,
but with all the rest
there wasn’t room
to mention it

Brexit?
let them chase it
if that’s the future they
promised us.
