The Great Unwashed

entry picture

I went down town on the bus

using my free bus pass

but found to my utter dismay

it was full of working class


What a complete misnomer

cos the thing for me that irks

is that whilst they are working class

few of them actually work


The bus smelt truly awful

of stale sweat, fags and beer

and chicken bhuna down the front

of fake designer gear


So I didn't enjoy the bus ride

and will not do it again

I'd sooner drive to the station

and go to Brum on the train

Blunt and to the point - which is interesting as i imagine that a good
number of those targeted in these lines would think of themselves in
that way. I preferred this version myself.
