Another Revolting Peasant

Victoria Pearson

Don’t look the homeless man in the eye
Hold your chin up as you walk by
Just another revolting peasant
Trying to get some free pay
They’ve all got jobs and houses anyway

Foodbank collectors, scrounging again
Why should you pay for society’s drains?
Just another revolting peasant
Trying to get a free meal
Don’t they know what you’ve just spent on that used car deal?

Tut as you pass the nurse picket line
Agitators complaining though everything’s fine
Just another revolting peasant
Protesting for ages
They knew when they trained that they’d get shit wages

The teachers are lying, schools have all they need
Wanting funding for books is just unbridled greed
Just another revolting peasant
Trying to game the system
They should quit if they can’t do the job, we’d not miss ’em

Ignore the police, pay ‘em no mind
Just scaremongering of the worst kind
Just another revolting peasant
Trying to make a scene
We all know the service is more funded than its ever been

Ignore all these protests, there’s nothing to see
These lefties aren’t like you and me
Just another revolting peasant
Who won’t understand
Inequality is a virtue of this land

Don’t listen to the shouting in the streets
It’s only the riff raff complaining they can’t afford to eat
The peasants are revolting all over the land
Calling that it’s time to make a stand

But you

You sit in front of the telly
While we promise you glory
You be a good peasant
And be sure to vote Tory
