Fianna Fail leader Micheal Martin (left) and Fine Gael leader Leo Varadkar

Two Cheeks of The Same Arse

Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael
Civil war parties,with one aim
To sell poets’ dreams to the highest bidder
Sworn enemies once,now cosy bedfellows

Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Dee
Selling to you the same old scam
Whilst selling the country to Uncle Sam
Traitors all, to a man

Traitors all, to dead men’s dreams
Overseeing homeless people on our streets
Covering up evil crimes, of church and state
A terrible beauty born, soon turned to hate

As they deny the people’s democratic will
The desire for real change they’ll ignore
They’ll watch more innocents shown the door
As their corrupt rich backers
demand more and more

You scratch my back,I’ll scratch yours
Tweedle Dee and Dumb, a pair of cute whores
Born of idealism, now resident in respective sewers
For what ails these corrupt, there is no cure

For Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael
Civil war parties with only one aim
Everything in Ireland is for sale
our common wealth, our hopes, dreams and desires

dreams that they, have long denied
Dreams of dead martyrs, they have failed
As with the greens they plot and scheme
In the septic isle ,dead babies still scream

As Fianna Fáil, and Fine Gael
Set out their stall,hear them call
Two soulless whores, Two cheeks of the same arse,
See them embrace and dance in this, a Machiavellian farce
