We share a visceral fear of the inconvenient truth
that the welfare falls far short of covering basic costs

Cost of living constantly rises yet dole stays the same
people cannot afford to live below the poverty line

When people can’t afford sufficient food or health
their spirit to survive is slowly drained by stealth

Politicians claim increasing it will not put people in jobs
diverts attention that they haven’t created employment

We all need to get very real about welfare recipients
and increase payments to cover their basic needs ..
