Check this! A pulse as accelerated
As the growing demand on the pension
Funds. Unemployment? That’s moderated
By our UK’s changing definition,
So looks as steady as that temperature
Chart. Budget deficit, in recognition
Of the Chancellor’s staid expenditure,
Threatens rude Rabelaisian health
(Hope that optimism isn’t premature).
Reflexes: these are like the nation’s wealth,
Retracted in the hands of a top
Five per cent. (That’s right. Take a deep breath.)
Interest rates: down. Inflation: more or less stopped.
Workforce: flexed as any Eastern sweatshop.
