Mock The Council, One Poem At A Time

 

As someday it may happen that a victim must be found
I’ve got a Little List, I’ve got a Little List
Of society offenders who might well be underground
And who never would be missed, they never would be missed.

There’s the pestilential politicians who almost make you cry
They try to buy your votes but really can’t tell you why
And the local council treasurer whose budget’s in the red
Sticks up the price of parking and kills the town stone dead
And councillors who closures of leisure centres do insist
They’re either stoned or pissed, if they think they won’t be missed.

CHORUS: I’ve got ‘em on the list, I’ve got ‘em on the list
And I don’t think they’ll be missed, I’m sure they’ll not be missed

There’s the dustman who on scattering your rubbish does persist
I’ve got him on the list, I’ve got him on the list
And the election leaflets full of crap, you really can’t resist
They’d none of them be missed, they’d none of them be missed
There’s the planning portfolio man who will only say
We’ll flog our fields to Liverpool if they will only pay
And members of the planning committee after an attack
Have had their powers removed and now would like them back
And the planning director who does u-turns with a twist
I don’t think he’ll be missed, I’m sure he’d not be missed.

CHORUS: I’ve got ‘em on the list, I’ve got ‘em on the list
And I don’t think they’ll be missed, I’m sure they’ll not be missed

The council house drug dealers who now are rather rife
The students parking everywhere, I’ve got them on the list
All West Lancashire Senior husbands who play golf
They’d none of them be missed, they’d none of them be missed
And leisure politicians and their cronies of all kinds
Who flogged off landfill rights to Serco, it really was a bind
I’d like to name the bastards but they’re quite inclined to sue
But it really doesn’t matter whom you put upon the list
For they’d none of them be missed, they’d none of them be missed

CHORUS: You may put ‘em on your list, you may put ‘em on your list
And they’ll none of ‘em be missed, they’ll none of them be missed!
