smirk
of uncivil law

i have confirmed
by “watch the system do”
not “hello really nice people
tell me all the faults you’ve got”

they won’t commit
a simple coin
to lift a speaking handset
to help a hearing fair

but they’ll commit
the cost of brothel nights
driving petrol and pollution
bullying enforcement

to be right that great principle
isn’t worth a penny
for power that great corrupter
they’ll spend a hundred pound
