The Commonwealth

Whilst ever we're part of the Commonwealth,
Good Queen Liz, I will drink to your health.
All that democracy wrapped up in a noun,
Would you mind, awfully, if I borrowed our crown?

Democracy

Democracy
More dead from Covid nineteen
Than were killed in fourteen-eighteen
Second World War, Vietnam
And still this man don't give a damn.

Democracy, well that's a joke
The wishes of ordinary folk
Discounted on merely a whim
But not if you voted for him.
