R. P. I.
R P I - The Anagram
There’s a cost of living crisis that could cripple me and you
with the fastest rising prices since the end of World War Two.
That’s me and you - generic you - we’re all in this together,
except we’re not there’s many who this storm will simply weather.
I can’t believe we’re here again they’re advertising gold
values and investments, when to buy or sell or hold
as workers and the unemployed fret about our food and bills
the stinking rich are ever buoyed; listening to their ringing tills.
While the monthly prices indices they call the RPI
what statisticians use to bleed the plebs and workers by.
But this quaint abbreviation that they christen RPI
is but a crude estimation used to measure who will die
and save on costly housing bills, expensive social care
Government without the frills keeping infrastructure bare.
So for fuck’s sake friend be honest and swap the letters round
there’s little time for modesty and tell me what you found?
That RPI is just a code that everyone should see
an anagram that should be shown just as it is – R I P.
