Stat 193 Flat 193

 

Location, price or space to move,

Pick one of three, it’s all on you.

You want a flat that’s warm and clean?

There’s one in Waikanae you’ll see’s pristine.

Under 200? We can work that out,

It’s an ex p-lab, but the smell’s almost out.

Does it fit a double bed, why of course it can!

If three share a room you can move in today.

You’re all social drinkers?  You’ve got me sold,

Just finish by six—the neighbours are old.

None of you work, but still want a flat?

Sell off some organs and we’ll get you in stat.

Paperwork’s done, but which was your hall?

Oh you’re from KJ??? Sorry we’re full.

I, Daniel Blake and the Welfare State

: Recently at the NZIFF I was fortunate enough to see Ken Loach’s I, Daniel Blake, this year’s winner of the Palme d’Or at Cannes. By the end of the film nearly everybody seemed to be in mourning and most of the people seated around me were sniffling and wiping their eyes. I,
