Mr Rhubarb


Song for politicians (wine & cheese update)


There's a...


Great view from my Ivory Tower

The window is frosted, but I still feel the power.

Got my...


Savile suite so I feel the part

But I like to pretend I got it straight from Primark

I feed my…


Flock through the magical lense

My sincere smile upon your telly transcends

And I'm…


Fully trained not to give a straight answer

I could win a prize for the best verbal dancer!


So here's to you..




F@ck the country and its hopes and dreams

Got my agenda and political schemes

I'm Mr Rhubarb, dya know what that means

I'll tell you anything you want to believe!

My face is friendly, but I don't give a F@ck

What's it to me if you're down on your luck?

Look to the mirror and what do I see?

A thing of beauty, it's political me!


I'll try to…


change you and your general persuasion

With a full guarantee I'll put my cap on inflation

I'll give…


You a vote on matters of note

But send out a veto if it sticks in my throat

I'm the…


Best man, for the whole of the nation

I'll syphon your cream while you're under sedation

I'm your…


MP with some bullshit degree,

With an OMG through to IDC


So here's to you…




And, the best wine & cheese

Is my favourite thing

Who cares about lockdown

Let's dance & sing!


The plebs may be dying

But, I make the rules

Of course, I don't follow them

Rules are for fools!


Just do as we say

Not as we do

We're privileged politicians

Not commoners like you!  


Just stay where you are

Beneath my shiny shoe

And remember I'm always here


Just not for f@cking you!

Thanks Stephen, I love this-so powerful and validating! I feel this all rings very true-especially while politicians keep changing their minds every day with the approach they are taking to managing covid -19. Why are politicians leading this and not health professionals? Some good humour in this poem. Well done!

Best wishes,

Thank you Keith & Julie, it really is a sad state of affairs. Politicians have never been my favourite people, this just verifies everything I ever thought about them.
And thanks for the likes Nigel, Holden, moonlight & Leon. Always appreciated 🌈

Brilliant, can’t help feeling sad for the reasons that inspired this.
