At The Dispatch Box
Author: Elizabeth Squires


at the dispatch box
the treasurer stood
handing down a budget
that was less than good

he freely with held
a percentage of our tax
and he reassured the nation
that we could relax

well the proof of the pudding
is yet to be seen
will the nations finances
be bloated or lean

..well there is nothing

well there is nothing bloated or lean about your writing - it`s just somewhere inbetween ... and it`s perfect!
