Blair & Cameron's toy.

Submarine launched Trident

To Her Majesty's Realm Satan has sent,
The American over-hyped Trident.
To smiling Cameron and Blair just twenty billion,
But to me it's more like a squillion.

For though Americans tell us they're nice,
We this toy won't get cost price,
So for the super rich this price, a profit event,
Of perhaps somewhere near five and twenty percent.

This means British taxpayers will find to their dismay,
About five billion pounds of the money they pay,
The super-rich will pocket,
Before they give us our rocket.
