Conservatives believe the poor
are skivers and scroungers,
getting the just rewards
for their feckless idleness.
They have no compassion or empathy,
whether it be for the children
who go hungry,
the homeless dying on the streets
or the elderly
who can't afford to heat their homes.
They have instituted a cruel system
of universal credits
to make it as difficult as possible
to receive payments promptly.
Their callous disregard for the poor
is only exceeded by their own hubris.
