Soft targets

Their disabilities are permanent,

But their carers may be not,

This Government determined,

To take any dignity they've got.

They treat them with derision,

As if they don't exist,

What next? extermination,

The disabled first on any list.

For God's sake ,will you stop the cuts,

So disgusting and so wrong,

While a TD claims five grand for mileage,

Just to drive along.

Remember at election time,

These cuts won't be forgotten,

Or that something in this State of ours,

Is well and truly rotten.

It's not the vulnerable and weak,

Who have anything to fear,

But the smug and arrogant leadership,

When we kick them out of here.
