I wrote this about 20 years ago, in my early teens!!! How I wish these sentiments had changed in that time….but I still stand by every word (and of course there will be those exceptions who prove the rule…Caroline Lucas among them…)

Politics is awful
Politics is sad
I think politicians are all absolutely mad
They play a game with people’s lives
spending all their money
corruption is their favourite word
to them it’s sweet as honey
So where does all this money go?
I think we have a right to know.
They spend it paying selfish louts
whose job it is to scream and shout
pretending they know what they mean –
you can’t deny, they’re awfully keen.
Their game is just one endless row.
Surely they can see that now.
A dream of mine is that one day
one of the politics array
will try to shut up for a while
and think with an enormous smile
He actually stops and thinks,
‘What I’m doing really stinks!’
