PAID LOSER

I get paid to be a loser
By the New Zealand government
Forced to be on welfare
Hardly a dollar I’d call well spent

In order to get paid of course
By the New Zealand government
You have to turn up and beg
With the latest forms they sent

This whirlpool of neglect
This sea of degradation
This oppressive system that is
A blight upon our nation

I’ve cost them hundreds, cost them thousands
But still they don’t see
If I’d been given proper rehab
From welfare I’d now be free

So many times I’ve tried to stand
Though I knew I was unsteady
And I told them more than once
My broken heart’s not ready

12 years down the track
From rape and not-guilty
My life’s a worthless piece of shit
Yet they continue to screw me

The pain inside my head
So great I pray for death
After yet more persecution
I’m down to one last breath

I get paid to be a loser
By the New Zealand government
Forced to be on welfare
Hardly a dollar I’d call well spent

End

So ACC and mental health refuses me the care I am entitled to and the only care I can access is under WINZ.  The staff are not adequately trained, are not senior enough health professionals to be dealing with seriously ill – eg suicidal, self-harming, violent, mentally ill and terminally ill people.

But what gets me are the New Zealand media, this has been going on for years, since the invasion of neo-liberal political ideologies in the 80s and the media do as little as possible to tell the stories of the thousands suffering.  At the same time they keep asking our cruel immoral elitist corrupt neo-liberal politicians what they think.  National have done nothing but further degrade persecute and hurt poor, abused, mentally ill and other disabled people.  You only need to make a few comments about just how bad things are on National party twitter feeds and you will see exactly what these revolting people are truly like.
