Another from 2010 which I wrote when Nick Clegg and David Cameron joined forces in the UK.


Feel Like Alice

Twedle dee and tweedle dumb have taken power
From the Red Knight who was thrown out in the end
But which one of the two will become Mad Hatter
And the other Cheshire cat like is penned

So why do we feel like Alice?
Walking in a labyrinth of doubt
Politics has now got double vision
And the laws they make only they can flout

This time the white rabbit wasn’t late
Was it us that didn’t see the time
Is it our fault for following so blindly?
But we’ll blame it on his clock that didn’t chime

Is this a bad dream?
Will the looking glass shatter and we’ll be saved
Or are we like the white queen
Following like sheep the two we’ve made

So why do we feel like Alice?
Walking in a labyrinth of doubt
Politics has now double vision
And the laws they make only they can flout
