Blue Sky Thinking

Dear me, what a very poor show!
The proles have no get up and go!
Despite all we've cut,
We're stuck in a rut:
Our profits are awfully slow.

We'd sell off the countryside, but
There's little of Britain to put
On sale now to grow
Our capital's flow -
This problem's a tough little nut.

Well, this is a bit of a blow,
But business is business, and so
We'll righteously jut
Our low-flying gut
And up the supply of Heathrow!
