Philip Hammond’s Backside.


You are paid too much,

money is too tight

for the public sector purse.

Only a politician with greed upon his mind

would suggest that a nurse, a firefighter,

a police officer or a teacher

is earning too much,

isn’t that a slap in the face,

perhaps it would have only been worse

for those devils who dare be public spirited

and do the jobs that others cannot do,

if Philip Hammond had bared his backside

to the news anchors

and the television cameras

that as they reflect upon

being told they are worthless,

that they kiss

his arse

and be thankful.
