Ministers, you were voted in to protect the people;
Death resulted, reports ignored , you were feeble.
Why, when we leave the theatre of war
We leave those citizens worse off than before?
Why when you leave your post, for lucrative pastures new
We are left poorer, as our money you blew?
Ministers, you were voted in to protect the citizens
We are breathing in foul air and treading on dangerous wast.
Ministers you were voted in to protect the youngsters,
Why are so many abused and neglected by state carers?
Ministers you were voted in, as we thought you better than those before.
Ministers where are the statesmen of yore?
