As if it could get worse (Cuadrilla)

September 27, 2018

As if it could get worse.

A country persuaded
that cuts to the poor
due to wrongs of the rich
would warrant a change.

As if it could get worse.

The country, poorer,
wages slashed,
what backlash?
More banker's cheques cashed.

As if it could get worse.

What backlash?
The country's poor
persuaded
for richer or poorer.

As if it could get worse.

Finally, the day,
justice departed,
fracking started,
activists smarted.

As if it could get worse.

Crime and punishment
at the behest
of corporate greed.
A sickening precedent, to heed.

As if it could get worse.

Police,
Government,
Corporations;
Corrupted creed.

As if it could get worse.
