There’s revolution in the air.

I saw protesters over-run

the wood green council offices today,

followed by riot police sprinting into madness.

I was at the zoo earlier today

someone tried to take my photo

as I was queuing to get in,

he really took offence

when I said I didn’t want my photo taken.

Libya is on the verge of meltdown,

our government are liars,

our streets aren’t safe

but it aint us making them unsanitary.

The middle east is fucked,

oil prices are sky-rocketing,

healthcare is diminishing,

police funding is being slashed,

the streets are unsafe – so they say.

My streets aren’t unsafe,

There’s an insane guy in the supermarket

Shouting at the cigarette stalls.

There are elderly folk rotting in the cafes

The kids have got knives,

but they’re all just for bravado.

The bus driver is a Wurzel,

the butcher is retarded,

the twenty chicken shops

all have their certificates for hygiene,

but my government is trying

to make the rich richer, the poor poorer,

and the streets are unsafe?

I don’t think so.

Closed windows are unsafe,

shut curtains,

pulled blinds,

locked doors are unsafe.

Being afraid of each other

for no reason is unsafe.

My streets are just fine.

My government aint.
