I want you to consider the low waged when devising tomorrow's bill
said the pm

they ponder the situation in the boardrooms

one CEO says he won't take his bonus today
as we are all in this together

later the postman we hear is to come with a box
offering opportunity to fold ourselves and climb in
winter the storm in a warmer climate

we must affix the appropriate postage
