Poetry Post - Hung Parliament

While the Muse has been busy demolishing Genghis Khan’s book, my author and her fellow countrymen have been busy demolishing their government… and it seems putting the government back together again is proving as much of a headache as restructuring our book!

Katherine has been rather distracted by it all, so here is a poem she wrote to make sense of things:

Number 10 is full of boxes.
Moving in, moving out,
Squabbling over seats in Commons
And common people’s lives.
We are without government,
Without agreement,
Without majority
Or single strong party.
But one thing we have kept
Is our National Debt.
