Dear Friends

DF 50 - A Castle Full Of Rascals

June 2009

Dear Friends

On the current expenses furore in The House of Commons, I wonder why everyone is so shocked...'twas ever thus.

A Castle full of Rascals (Chorus)

A glistening of questioners
Prepare the inquisition
While jackals in the shadows
Manoeuvre for position
A fundament of righteous men
A barrow of ideals
The carriage of mis-justice
Crushes all beneath its wheels
Conspiracies of silence
Within the temple walls
Graveyards full of promises
That no one can recall
A castle full of rascals
A fortress full of thieves
A parliament of silver tongues
That flatter to deceive
