Army, Factory or Pit(Villanelle)

 

A corrupt careers master, who thought he was it

To a lad, just fourteen and naïve

Said your options are, Army, Factory or Pit

 

A master of nothing, who knew Jack Shit

The innocent will always believe

A corrupt careers master, who thought he was it

 

High on praise, acclaim and plaudit

In a position of trust to aggrieve

Said your options are, Army, Factory or Pit

 

The man was a big bloody hypocrite

How many kids did he deceive?  

A corrupt careers master, who thought he was it

 

You can’t stop on at school, your dad claims benefit

The idea’s too much to conceive

Said your options are, Army, Factory or Pit

 

We don’t educate scum, your face doesn’t fit

Now pick up your papers and leave

A corrupt careers master who thought he was it

Said your options are, Army, Factory or Pit
