Donkey Jacket

They said it was the longest suicide note in history

and created Care in the Community.

They said it was disrespectful to wear a donkey jacket

and then they sold us shell suits.

They said that council houses were rubbish

and everybody bought one.

They said there was an enemy within

and gave birth to New Labour.

They said there was no such thing as society

and so we all stopped in.

They said Gotcha!

and we laughed.
