The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Can You Hear the Prison Gates Clang?
Can You Hear the Prison Gates Clang?
Can you hear the prison gates clang?
Not a chance for this political gang,
Forget your Adscam premonitions,
Not for these corrupt politicians.
They’ll soon announce that it’s a bore,
Like Somalia and Krever before,
And expensive too because of the costs,
Close it down now because they’ve heard lots.
They’re immune to doing time in jail,
Their appointees would certainly prevail,
They own the status quo, didn’t you know?
Appointees on a quid pro quo.
Forget those many missing millions,
Mismanagement among those civilians,
Though some money did go into foundations,
But that secret and no more allegations.
This is close to discussing religion,
Like a conversation with a pigeon,
They are programmed to never change,
So don’t even think that this is strange.
