Striving Skivers

When every morning is a battle of pain and will,

When each day makes you wonder how you’re coping still

When luxury is a bath before the hot water runs out

And it’s the rule, not exception, to live hand to mouth

When you’re assessed and then retested – enduring judgement and spite

For not striving enough and undeserving of rights.

.

Or

.

When your benefits take the form of expenses claims

And your next meal is inevitable – leaving all else as gain.

When justice is determined by the size of your purse

The golden rule renders silent those enduring the worst

When life’s chances are determined by who your parents were

It’s clear to whom the term ‘skivers’ refers.
