Fair Shares

Only those who are in a draught

Get up to close the door

Those who do not feel it

Why should they cross the floor?


Why are we ruled by wealthy men?

Millions in the bank

Politics protects their interests

Better than any tank


The rich man in the parable

Surrounded by his wealth

Hadn’t the first clue about Lazarus

Much less about his health


Save me from being rich or poor

The pleading of the psalm

One will make me arrogant

The other cause alarm


The wealthy go to parties

The poor march along the street

Cavalry will sort them out

Blood when forces meet


I’m okay a pensioner

Bed and board all found

Bu the poor are with you always

Better listen to that sound
