Tim Minchin's "F- the Poor" with a link to his video

I would be liar
if I pretended to admire
the red-light windscreen-cleaning empire
that you've built

But my heart is good
it's not a thing of stone or wood
I'll give you 50c
to take away my guilt
etc etc...

...with all the usual Tim Minchin charm and determination to shock.

I love the little internal rhyme-scheme he drops in from time to time. (yes, that's my excuse, and I'm sticking with it.)

I think I first saw Tim Minchin playing "a coked-up rock star" and the role strangely suited him. Now, every so often, a song of his pops up on my feed. I thought I'd share this one. Hope you checked it out and enjoyed it - it seemed very important at this time, when we are facing so many disasters, and when people are saying how important their charity is, while turning away from the bigger issue of poverty.

Have a great week, I hope you enjoyed the piece in all it's horror :)
