Here comes Sooty & The Coalface Crew
Their thoughts and prayers and a handshake for you,
A promise of money and their hope you’ll renew.
They’re visiting disasters for the evening news
Where drought is a nightmare, the fires are worse.
Is there more could be done? His answer’s perverse:
Our responses will be practical, like how shall we live
With disasters unavoidable, there’s nothing to forgive.
Be reassured that there’s nothing we can do
To save you from a future a lot like the news:
Shameless, not Blameless.
PS It’s doggerel, yes, poetry, no … and I am angry, yes.
