VERSE ON WINTER FUEL PAYMENT – I WONDER WHY?

3 min read

I wonder why, as we grow old,

They push us further from the fold,

‘You’ve moved abroad’, is oft the cry,

‘and you want equal treatment! Why?’

‘You live in Spain – expect the vote?’

Repeated with monotonous note.

The government just does not care

‘We have no interest in you there’.

Our generation has been the one

that’s worked so hard but kept its fun,

its independence! and is not cowed

by Government that lies out loud.

Have they not the sense, the wit,

to see that we know wrong from ‘rit’?

We have the weight of law onside,

Tho’ their own laws are misapplied.

Our politicians are the joke

as they point fingers and they poke

with fun the citizen abroad

whilst they at home parade their fraud.

The old, the frail, need winter heat

They’re brushed aside by hearts concrete.

‘It’s hot in Spain’ says he called Smith,

‘No fuel for you, it stops forthwith’.

‘Protect their benefits is the cry’

Cameron shouts it to the sky

Brits in Europe need not apply,

We’ll ignore them – they will die.

‘All the taxes that they pay

we will use our own sweet way’

‘So if you’re old and feel the cold

Then more blankets you must unfold’

There is one place that hears our cry,

Our plea to Brussels, they’ll say ‘aye’.

‘You’ve earned it and you’ve paid your dues,

Westminster lies, here’s some good news’.
