Doorstep Clapping

(a skipping-rope rhyme)

Close to a decade of Tory rule
Austerity has been awfully cruel
How many against the amendment passing?
These are the names, on doorsteps clapping

Adams, Allan, Bacon, Cox
Davis, Ellis, Evans, Fox
Gove, Grant, Hammond, Hancock

These are the names, on doorsteps clapping

Hunt, Javid, Jenkyns, Johnson,
Kawczynski, Knight, Lewis, Morton,
Murray, Nokes, O’Brien, Paterson

These are the names, on doorsteps clapping

Patel, Quin, Raab, Sturdy
Sunak, Smith, Thomas, Tracey
Vickers, Walker, Wright, Zahawi

These are the names, on doorsteps clapping
No doubt sincere but absent for years
