Title: Nepotism Rules..OK!

Charity begins at home, you make that very clear
It isn't what you preach, of course
Yet in practise you hold it dear
Let the Proletariat eat cake

Keep it all in the Family, Family values are the aim
But it wasn't those sort of values my friend
Your explanations seem quite inane
Let the Proletariat eat cake

You spin your web of deceit, tell the tale quite well
A super manifesto, and promises galore
when the votes have tallied up then we can go to hell
Let the Proletariat eat cake

It's ok. You are safe , for now at least
Time to invest, and stack away.Offshore is best
But look over your shoulder, greed is the name of the beast
let the Proletariat eat cake

Do you have a conscience, or was that left behind?
Outside the hallowed chambers doors
Once safely ensconsed inside, two fingers to mankind
Let the Proletariat eat cake
