Mirror Mirror on the wall,
tell me the truth or not at all
tell me who will win the race
tell me who will stand the pace
from now until the 6th May
we’ll be bombarded with all they say
They promise much, as they want your vote
they’ll juggle, do cartwheels and even coat
the bitter pill of recession with sugar for all
Tell me true Mirror Mirror on the wall.
Mirror Mirror on the wall
tell me true, don’t just cough and stall
can you give me a quick preview
am I Green, Red, Yellow, or Blue?
Should I believe anything they all say?
after the expenses row, and their pay,
they still think nothing of excepting a bung
so maybe the answer is they should be HUNG?
Mind you, a hung parliament would be no joke
agreeing on issues or else they’d choke
the seeds of democracy, nothing getting through
Mirror, Mirror is this the answer? tell me true.

I must admit, first thought on the words ‘hung parliament’, I saw the macabre scene in my head, of row upon row of lampposts full of hung politicians. Maybe just an indication of my strange humour as I couldn’t stop laughing!!!
