Larkin around

Leaving behind Odyssean indulgence... BoneyOCoonassa, Guardian comments scribe, quoted a Larkin. Had to reply:

Larkin's original (How to win the next election)

Prison for strikers,
Bring back the cat,
Kick out the niggers,
How about that?

Trade with the Empire,
Ban the obscene,
Hang all the commies,
God save the Queen!

My reply (same title)

Prison for fatcats,
they're taking the piss,
Kick out the rentiers.
How about this?

Trade with whoever,
the economy's planned.
Hang out the red flag
in this pleasant land.
