Sing Hallelujah!

Oh it's a glorious day, a fine day to be shafted by the government. Before I go smilingly about my day I think I'll write a little poem.

Fuck off NAMA.
Fuck off Jordan.
Fuck off Peter Andre.
Fuck off Brian Lenihan.

Do one, Liam Carroll.
Do one, John O'Donoghue.
Do one, Cowen.
Do one, Anglo Irish Bank.

Roll over, Taxpayers.
Take this, Taxpayers.
You love it, Taxpayers.
Let's cuddle, Taxpayers.

I'll be singing all the way to the bus stop.

Conan Drumm said...


Is it sung like a jingle or a rap or a ballad or what?

2009 beers please.
Keep the change.


NaRocRoc said...

I'm crying reading this.

Radge said...

Mapstew - I dabble.

Red - It could be the new national anthem.

Conan - That's very much open to interpretation. Go wild.

AG - AG Anon.

NaRocRoc - It's emotive stuff, it really is.

Green Of Eye, Sharp Of Claw said...

It's catchy Radge,could almost become my mantra for the week!

Is there finger clicking and chin stroking involved whilst reciting it? :)

Radge said...

Green Of Eye - There definitely is, but it's important not to do both at the same time as it affects the rhythm of the piece.

Andrew said...

i nearly wrote a poem on much the same themes last night. It's either write a poem or break something loudly, isn't it?

Radge said...

Or get drunk, Andrew, which I did. God I feel wretched.
