If voters never change their minds,
Remaining in the dark,
It is because, one often finds,
Those minds are stuck in ‘park’.
But those that can, I greatly fear,
Attempt to change at all,
Will switch them straight into top gear …
And then, of course, they stall.
The politicians they will choose
Small change do not like much,
But when you have a lot to lose
They’re experts with a clutch!
With grating gear big tenders steer?
Let fluid change what’s static;
By greasing palms will then appear
They’re very good at change to ‘low’,
And on a downhill course,
Their gearboxes get stripped and so
Go cart before the horse!
The change we fear that next we’ll earn –
And nothing could be worse –
Is that the old guard will return
With gears jammed in reverse.
