Slogan should be ‘contracts, contracts, contracts’,
Not ‘build, build, build’. Contracts, the intention.
Public cash to cronies thereby dispatch.
Describe as ‘government intervention’.
Proclaim it as being ‘Rooseveltian’,
although not the same as Franklin D did.
In a programme distinctly Keynesian,
infrastructure projects, jobs, provided.
Was public money for the public good.
By contrast, this a weak imitation.
Money going to where will do less good.
Be overcharged. Price paid by the nation.
Gain from profits, dividends, donations.
In future, say this ‘fails expectations’.
