PM Gordon Brown looked out
On the feast of Stephen
But debt still lay round about
Deep and harsh unbeaten
Grimmly shone G. Brown that night
For the cuts were cruel
When his chanc’lor came in sight
Failing to lift the mood

“Hither, Darling stand by me
If thou know’st it, telling
Yonder voter, who is he?
And what his voting intention?”
“Sire, he votes across the fence
No party can count on.
Last time he felt Iraq make sense
Now he’s not so certain.”

“Raise the VAT with Auld Lang Syne
He’ll be too drunk to bother
Thou and I will see him whine
But not let finance whither.”
Darling’s budget forth it went
Forth it went together
Through economy’s wild lament
And the bitter voter

“Sire, the mood is darker now
The voters’ mood is stranger
Fails my heart, I know not how,
We can go no longer.”
“Read the polling, my good page
Cam’ron’s doing badly
Losing the odd percentage
Tory lead less widely.”

In his master’s steps he trod
With glasses rose tinted
Everyone else thought it odd
After what the pre-budget hinted
Therefore, socialist men, be sure
Wealth or rank possessing
Ye who now will fleece the poor
On election day be stressing
