It’s the rifle-butt nature of all this:
Sit down, shut up, sign here, do as you’re told.
We talk about land grabs, but this is, well,
An extortion, of dignity and heart.
There’s a bash for the scammers in the North,
And jobs for the boys. Lot’s of them, no doubt.
Imagine this: ‘Yes, I’d love to be ruled
By the people who blew this place to bits
And killed or maimed our friends and family.’
‘Certainly, sir. Bend down, and I will kick
Your backside half way down the road for fun.’
Surprised? ‘Remember those heavies, touting
With the clipboard? It was all written down.
Hard luck, mate. You should have read the small print.’
