001 – Big Night In

Big Night In

There’s something disconcerting 
‘Bout requests to give your cash
From people who have vast amounts
In their own personal stash

Think of it as pasta
Or toilet rolls or bread
Where someone with a warehouse full
Wants you to give instead

The people who are asking
Are immensely wealthy acts
So I’m not going to Take That
Pay your bloody tax.
