The Wicked Witch Of Westminster

Post by Vic Lewis VL » April 8th, 2013, 10:08 am

WARNING - contains possibly controversial political comments!

Well, I may not have written much lately, but hearing the news that the Thatcher woman had passed away was definitely inspirational....I hated, loathed and detested that woman with every single fibre of my being. I will shed no tears tonight...in fact I will celebrate with a few drinks!

The Wicked Witch Of Westminster.

I went on strike for better pay, so you rationalised my job away,
The miners suffered more than me, you destroyed their whole industry,
You put four million on the scrap-heap, didn't care how much they'd weep,
You single-handedly destroyed, the working class, they're now unemployed...

I'll shed no tears for you, wicked witch of Westminster,
The tributes come in thick and fast, but no working man will miss her...

Privatised the utilities, gas and electricity,
Privatised the NHS, sold it off to pay your debts,
Sold the miners down the river, millions sat and shivered,
The rich got richer as they do, the poor got poorer under you...

I'll shed no tears for you, wicked witch of Westminster,
The tributes come in thick and fast, but no working man will miss her...

Attila the hen, Genghis bitch, iron lady only cared for the rich,
Crush the poor into the dirt, squeeze them till it really hurts....

Yeah now you're gone I'll shed no tears, I remember those awful years,
When you ruled in your bright blue suits, and crushed us under your jack-boots,
Yeah now you're gone, goood riddance I say, today's a beautiful day,
We've finally laid the Thatcher curse, don't think things could be any worse?

But your legacy lives on, under the lash of Cameron,
Give the millionaires tax relief, and tax the poor beyond belief,
I see Brixton, Toxteth happening again, so much poverty, so much pain,
Maybe it's time for a revolution? The next election will see a solution.....

I'll shed no tears for you, wicked witch of Westminster,
The tributes come in thick and fast, but no working man will miss her...

:-) :-) :-)

Hi Vic,

That's clearly one straight from the heart! I couldn't stand her either, so I enjoyed the read. It has quite a Billy Bragg ring to it.

Cheers,

Chris

It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll!
