In What With Who?

There he stands, words so simple and clever.
Failed smart shark or pretty pathetic pig
declaring ‘we’re all in this together’.

Powerless people protect each other;
the phrase’s first impression. The big
community, words so simple and clever.

She’s poor, pays rent, a roof for her daughter.
Expectations of a tree on a twig.
Helpless but ‘we’re all in this together’.

She takes trips to the benefits centre –
condemned for taking drops from an oil rig.
They’re twisted, words so simple and clever.

She voted for him, thought he’d deliver
for her family, but now money digs
debt deeper. ‘We’re all in this together’.

His number is ten; a tiny tower,
his life lovely. Lying lion or sick pig?
There he stands, so simple and clever,
declaring ‘we’re all in this together’.
