This Country

Part 1

This country is a mockery,
Hypocrisy at its finest.
Britain is ruled by bare faced liars,
Can’t even make their minds up but taking the time to try control ours.

I’m tired.

Because the more these clowns keep lying,
The more people keep dying,
Whilst they stay justifying,
And now we can’t even try to defy them.
We marched to #KILLTHEBILL,
But their shady tactics kept us distracted.
Now protesting could land you up to 10 years in prison.
And we all know the Met Police are just as bad,
Your apologies don’t appease us, relieve us or free us.

They talk a lot about Covid being the virus,
And though that’s true,
These people in power have long been a pandemic
Trying to divide us,
More than the strains of this virus.

Part 2

This country is a mockery,
hypocrisy at it’s finest.
Britain is ruled by bare-faced liars –

– Wait, I said that already.
But these things have not changed.

– Wait, you knew that already,
and yet you still voted the same.
Still happy to have us stuck in this same game.

How come Boris and his friends can admit to sniffing in their ends,
but for the rest of us it’s always a different story?
One rule for us and none for them.

See, it’s class-ic what they’re doing!
Happy to disrupt and destroy society because for them it’s a different reality.
And these people in power don’t care about us.
They call us snowflakes for caring about something other than us.
I think that really if we all just worked together we could rise up to be something bigger than us.

But that’s just my take on it.

So I’ll leave you to decide what you want to take away from it.

Part 3

This country is a mockery,
hypocrisy at it’s finest.
Britain is ruled by bare-faced liars

How many times do I have to say that until it sticks?
And how many times do we all have to feel that until it clicks?

How come so many of you were crying about Boris and partygate,
but shed no tears when he was shedding hate,
on marginalised communities and dictating their fate.
From conversion bans that aren’t really bans,
to washing hands of asylum seekers on British land
and showing a lack of care to refugees,
though this is the most care I’ve ever seen because for once these refugees look like you and not me.


I’m tired.
We’re all so damn sick and tired.

Part 4

This country is a mockery,
Hypocrisy at its finest.
Britain is ruled by bare faced liars.

Truss me when I say Liz Truss was no vote for women.
No vote for the working class,
believe me when she said she understood,
she was just kidding.
That woman was fibbing.

Fibbing about those humble beginnings,
because truss me, if she really understood,
she’d have shared some of her winnings.

Not clutching to identities between straws,
owning experiences that are not even yours.
Bad mouthing schools in Leeds,
and then expecting us to follow as you lead.
But who’s been failed and let down by low expectations now?

Someone said, every time she opens her mouth,
the pound drops.
And I laugh, because what else can we do?
Because for 44 days that was true.
But then the laughing stops,
because really I just want to know,
what it’s going to take,
to make the penny drop.
