AUGEAN STABLES

Witnessing "we know best" in action

Brings the whiff of putrefaction,

Rotting in the rank rejection

Of the offer of a clean election;

With humble begging bowl in hand -

("We know best", you understand).

All of which (for me) enables

The need to cleanse those Augean stables.

Cheers Brian - I've now also deleted the missed superfluous word "will" which, grammatically and rhythmically, was messing up the penultimate line.

Dipping a toe into the classics to highlight a very contemporary issue.
