Just to clarify

We don't want to punish the poor;
George Osborne's no Bullingdon boor;
Duncan Smith is a wit,
Boris Johnson's no twit,
And up is the way to the floor.

Down and out? Have no fear; you'll be fine.
Don't worry, don't whinge and don't whine.
Be eager to please
And pay the right fees,
And you'll fly in a skyful of swine.
