Fair

Fair

Labelled “fair” but tastes a lot like abuse

Snidey guffaws and earnest propaganda

"What do you think?" asks the BBC news

About poverty and this seasonal weather

I think that it’s fair – evenly balanced

For every free banker, an ATOS corpse

I think that it MUST be ever so just

Royal babies emerge and my widescreen warps

Rational, reasonable, really right, right?

Like the right wing flapping like a Union Flag

Over last year’s Olympian sports arena

Last century’s disputed Argentinean lands

Such lack of bias truly is cracking

The grass is greener both sides

Regardless of fracking

And for each fox that lives another day

Ten badgers MUST be blown away

It’s a cabinet full of Hooray Henrys

But look at what they’ve done for all the gays

Afforded rights that they’ll never take away

Well, at least not today…

Let’s see what happens when the votes come in

When that boat sails in immigrant-free

And let’s be sure to report it

Fairly.
