Poem of the Week #16: Expenses (Carol Ann Duffy )

New Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy has made her debut with a pithy couplet on the ongoing clusterfuck that is the MP’s expenses saga. Personally, I think everyone has gone a little nuts over this, but if it leads to political reform and weakens the stranglehold the two main parties have on the political system, then happy days.

Expenses

What did we do with the trust of your vote?
Hired a flunky to flush out the moat.
