Question Time (1990)

From the June 1990 issue of the Socialist Standard
If politicians know the truth
Why do they tell lies? 
If British Rail belongs to the public
Why do I have to pay my fare? 
If this is my country
Which bit is mine? 
If there are mountains of food
Why do people starve? 
If capitalism works
Why do people put up with it? 
If I am free
Why am I a wage slave? 
If this is democracy
Why can't I have my say ? 
If I am a polar bear
Why am I so cold?
                                                    M. J. Tavener
