The State’s medicine


FAT Ones, thin Ones

Angelic and deep in sin Ones,

Fit and healthy, morbidly rotund,

Recovered, vulnerable,

Runners, riders

The sadly moribund.

Old Ones, young Ones

Happy to work from home Ones

The self-employed, the zero-hours Ones

Never work again Ones

Teenagers, exam-sitters

Uni over broadband

Stuck at home, missing friends

Too much family, hard to stand

Lonely Ones, depressed Ones

Can’t bother to get dressed Ones

Tiny flat, no garden Ones

Five bedrooms in the country Ones

Elderly and frail Ones

Pitter patter tiny feet Ones

The sinecured, retired Ones,

End of furlough gets you fired Ones

Football fans and couch potatoes

One foot in the grave and the gravy trainers

Comorbid, vitamin D deficient

We need a fix that’s least efficient



Not much money

They won’t do

To the pharmas we’re in thrall

Expensive cure’s been set in motion

We’ll make One size to fit them all.

Two jabs, half-tested, genetic potion.
