Nurses bursaries scrapped Wages capped Students unpaid, betrayed By a stratified social system That ***** on the helpless and the selfless "Gratitude" is expressed Not by redressing the balance But with a clap Followed by a stab in the back: Oh, snap.
We're sick of your hollow applause: pause Rewind your mind three years To when you jeered And blocked their cause with a cheer: Tell me, is your conscience clear?
And when we think You can't sink any lower You throw a fresh blow: Increase front line pay But decline the same for our warriors in blue Who saved your **** neck on that ICU
And the saddest part Of this sorry story, Tory Is we're outraged and dismayed At the disdain you've displayed But amazed? No. Your track record is traceable Applause a mere mask Tasked with shielding years of austerity That's crippled our NHS With alarming prosperity
This proverbial ******* Will linger In the memories of those who chose A career of care Over privilege and flair
