I’m an ordinary British bloke,
Just trying to scrape by in my four-bed,
Back in my day,
I bought a hovel at eighteen,
Suffered little debt for my degree,
Why should the young have an easier time?
They clearly don’t work hard enough,
We never used to have mental illness,
Why not just cheer up?
Go and get some fresh air,

We’re being invaded by the displaced,
I see them on their dinghy warships,
They’re coming for the jobs we’ve retired from,
It’s true because the rag says so,
They said it on the front page,
It’s my opinion,
You can’t criticise me,
That would make you a leftie,
Full of woke,
Hating our country.

    I get SO aggravated when people say “why are your daughters depressed, they have no reason to be?!”

    That’s.not.what.depression.IS, #%*#£
    And I do not think young people “have it easy.” Can’t work a burger joint job and pay college tuition when the burger joints are still only paying pittance and college costs 2 arms and 3 legs now…

      Exactly! Thank you! It’s like people think depression is on a switch or something. Like people choose to be depressed.

      I think dark times are ahead frankly. Its almost impossible to comfortably live on a single wage these days without some form of government help. At least it’s like that in this country. There’s no hope of ever getting on the property ladder and student debt cripples many.
