Pay Strategy

By 18th June 2012December 9th, 2019No Comments

There’ll be no resuscitation,
Operation, medication,
For those over sixty five.
Why should they be kept alive?
It’s proving to be much too dear
To let them have an added year.
They’re burdens on society,
Drains on the economy
And that’s why we should set them free
To occupy the cemetery;
The Country taking what they’ve got
As payment for a six foot plot.
Housing, then, would be released;
We’d have less problems for the police
And we would need less social care
Because old people won’t be there.
The hospitals would have more beds,
With older people leaving dead
And pension savings that we make
By not keeping the old awake
Can pay for decent salaries
For hard-up bankers and M.P.s.
