Welfare Dependency : Ode to Skivers

No legs, no arms , no eyes
it came as quite a surprise ,
when I heard the Man on the radio say
how healthy I was feeling today ;

No legs, no arms , no eyes
he asked who was I to criticise ,
the Man on the radio said it was fair
to expect me to somehow get out of my chair ;

No legs, no arms , no eyes
the Man on the radio wanted no sad sighs ,
he said I could try to crawl out of the door
and get a job polishing the floor ;

The Man on the radio said
my condition had official data clear and empirical ,
to qualify for any benefits now
would require an old fashioned miracle .

footnote:
On June 10 2013 ,the present UK government introduced new.lower rates of benefit payments,subject to periodic ” fit for work” re-assessments for all disabled claimants .)
