Our Fine Society.

It’s only going to get worse.
With CCTV and the government’s
Financial difficulties,
Soon every little misdemeanour
Will be photographed,
And followed,
By a letter though your door,
Demanding payment.

But to scare you,
They’ll offer you,
A pay now and save half,
Or dispute,
And pay the lot.
As that makes sure,
Most will pay
Without a quibble.

But those who
Refuse to pay,
Can expect
A visit from the bailiffs
Who to their property,
Will help themselves,
Saying ‘It’s the law,
You dirty rat.
You didn’t pay,
And so we’ll take.
Whatso'er we want.’
