“We’re All In It Together”

Cheers by Richard Young

“We’re All In It Together”

Was it worth it, Boris ?
The scotch, the cake, the sing-a-long ?
To make and break your rules for us,
The mugs and unwashed throng ?

Of course it was !  A little crime
Is only crime if caught –
And if we’re bang-to-rights this time,
Well, that’s part of the sport !

Was it worth it, Boris ?
The lies, the sneers, the nods-and-winks ?
You’d risk your legacy for this ?
You’ve slipped from midas into jinx.

Poor chap, they’ve rumbled one small scheme,
Looks like you’ll have to go –
Best take one for the old-boys’ team
To keep the status quo.
