A Measure of Strength

Why, yes, it does take strength, I must confess,
To turn one's dead into an anecdote
And wave his corpse to hustle for a vote,
While nursing plans to kill the NHS.

So, Barry, when there's Mullahs you must tame -
Not picking fights, of course, but making free -
Be sure that you can always count on me
And Sam, and useful little what's-his-name.
