I Demand to See the Manager

Someone please bring me the manager of the working class

Some of them have stopped doing exactly what I asked

And they’re forming picket lines that other people won’t pass

So, someone please bring me the manager of the working class

 

Someone please bring me the manager of the working class

Richard Madeley on the telly said it was someone called Marx

But when I ask who’s in charge they just look at me askance

So, someone please bring me the manager of the working class

 

Someone please bring me the manager of the working class

Their ability to organise has left one quite aghast

Now they say the time for pay restraint has long since passed

So, someone please bring me the manager of the working class

 

Someone please bring me the manager of the working class

I’m finding their authority quite difficult to grasp

It’s not that Starmer fellow is it, by any chance

Won’t someone please bring me the manager of the working class

There are some events that can seem beyond parody but they
seem to happen with increasing frequency nowadays. I do like
the repeated request...doomed, of course, to failure.

Cheers Greg! It has been a breath of fresh air watching Mick Lynch speak truth to power and completely unravel the news-as-entertainment model.

Great stuff, Steve. No, I don't think it is that Starmer fellow. I rather think it's a heroic bloke called Mick.

Brilliant poem, Steve. I love how you mix humour with the bewilderment of...well, quite a lot of them, I guess..
