The Economic Sonnet
When inflation crosses limits
And domestic budgets stretch
Governments fall as people cry.
Ministers must then use their wits
Trying to please every kvetch.
But what if champagne hits a high?
The cost of condoms you can't bear?
Viagra costs a thousand pound,
The flow of vodka becomes dry
Fishing rods are also dear
And a guitar's price is not sound.
The dismal government economist
With humour now has made a tryst!
Condoms used to measure inflation
