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.
