Davey's Not For Turning

Alas, the proles again have let us down!
We still have failed to make our message clear.
They sit at home, or vandalise the town -
Why can they not get out and volunteer?
Alas for chavs unworthy of our vision!
Societally small, they cannot see
That we intend to stick with our decision
And stay on course for Maggie's million three.
