“These Are My Principles, If You Don't Like Them I Have Others”.

To manufacture meant to make by hand,
but manifesto has a different root.
Now manufacture means to mass produce
and manifesto, so we understand,
is quite redundant so we substitute
a fag packet or postage stamp, reduce
this thing once held in high esteem, rebrand,
pretend that nothing’s fixed, all points are moot.
For principles made public might induce
the earnest demos to demand
we stick to them, we’ll not go down that route.
We’d rather suffer torrents of abuse.
Ideas are mass produced, in think tanks now,
They're cheap as chips and worthless anyhow.
