Those alienated from humanity by a ceaseless barrage of political propaganda
spun by the billionaire media
are encouraged to feel hatred
for the undeserving poor
the lazy unemployed
the your-fault homeless
the someone elses child in poverty
the war veteran scrounger
the inner city slum protester
the slave-wage union striker
the mentally tormented in shock
all failures of personal responsibility.
And all the dopes of political propaganda shout
make them think through my prism
not thinking that cruel fate can take down their narcism
to the level of those they mock.
Idiot, do not tell with such high zest
the old and wicked lie
that some are more human than others
and spikes and pebbles in doorways
perches instead of seats in bus shelters
all to stop the homeless from sleeping or resting
is nothing more than Nazism.

And when such politicians as silver-spoon George Osborne pontificate about the moral imperative to have intervened in Syrian , temper your judgement of this high-ground moral stance with him asking at a Conservative Party conference “Where is the fairness, we ask, for the shift-worker, leaving home in the dark hours of the early morning, who looks up at the closed blinds of their next-door neighbour sleeping off a life on benefits.”
Clever politicians manipulate idiots, just as the Nazis did.
And the fellow-travelling Labour Party of Blair needs to be transformed by a revolutionary Momentum.
