Just in chaos

With their welfare reforms being constantly revised.
I wonder, did they hear our defenceless citizens' cries?
Or are they just in chaos?
People forced to choose between food and heat
Did they mean to bring our poor a-begging at some banker's feet?
Or are they just in chaos?
Public servants suffer under a two year pay freeze.
Did they really just forget to extend this to our MPs?
Or are they just in chaos?
Royal Mail is sold off on the cheap, while profiteers carve up utilities, hospitals and schools.
Did they think we wouldn't notice? Are they playing us for fools?
Or are they just in chaos?
If this is a plan, 
then it is nasty and pernicious.
If this is what they wanted 
then they really are quite vicious.
From DLA to bedroom tax
and Workfare back to Atos,
'our' government's clearly evil,
Or merely, just in chaos.
