In Which The Tory Election Strategy Is Found On The Back Of A Fag Packet Stained With Lynton Crosby’s Tears.

Make her the Vera Lynn of kitten heels
with the flag framed in soft focus
while cameras ignore or airbrush out
the casualties and corpses.
Bang on about strength and stability
and keep your fingers crossed
if the voters see through this charade,
we’ve lost.
