Prompt ~THE CANDY CABINET

THE CANDY CABINET


by John Yeo

I promise porridge oats for breakfast every single day

If in the coming elections you cast your vote for me.

My cabinet will make you wealthy after we break away.

~

We’ll be better off going it alone in every possible way

Vote to break the chains and everyone will feel free,

I promise porridge oats for breakfast every single day.

~

My chancellor will relax the annual tax we have to pay

There will be riches for all by my government’s decree,

My cabinet will make you wealthy after we break away.

~

Whisky with mIlk and honey will wash over the highway 

Mixed with tax-free champagne and imported chablis

I promise porridge oats for breakfast every single day.

~

Lochs and glens will be rich with my candy-cabinet in play

Vote for me to lead you, I’ll be your independence key

My cabinet will make you wealthy after we break away.

~

Vote for my cabinet to enrich us all in every possible way,

Our candy-cotton independence will start immediately,

I promise porridge oats for breakfast every single day.

My cabinet will make you wealthy after we break away.

~
