May’s Magic Money Trees

The Money Tree

Theresa May’s announcement about her agreement with the DUP made me cross. Apparently, contrary to what she said before, money doesn’t grow on trees.

May’s Magic Money Trees

Let’s quantitive ease the season’s defeats
with currencies that grow on trees.
Let’s scatter fees like autumn leaves
into the breeze as we deplete
the NHS so the DUP’s can have their treats.
Let’s prop up decreased majorities
whilst OAPs and minorities fear winter’s freeze.
The mellow fruitfulness of Keats
will fast become Dutch Elm disease
on this May’s magic money trees.
