20th February, 2016 (Election Fever! #Marian)

by Brendan Strong

Election fever. Fever pitch.
We drug ourselves out of the ditch,
Now it’s time to think of this:
What kind of country do we think this is?

The best small country in the world
In which to do business?
A beautifully strategic underworld,
With a low rate of taxes and a high rate of fitness?

Where winners win like winners
And do their charity work,
For losers who queue for dinners
After being underpaid for overwork.

Cutting from the middle of the string
Adding to the end, making it even longer again.
