They’re pushing dogshit through letterboxes again
It came in the 70’s
The National Front, the Nazis
Excrement pushed through the doors
Of Asian families, dehumanised as faeces
 
And here we are again
Stinking, putrid excrement
But this time, in print form:
Tabloids and election leaflets
Filled with racist bile
 
The effect is the same
Human beings demonised and blamed
Depicted as less-than-human;
First as scroungers and terrorists
Then cockroaches and vermin
 
And hate crime soars:
First the immigrants
Then the gay and the disabled.
We said ‘Never Again’
But we’ve picked the dogshit up off the mat
 
And soon
They’ll rebuild the gas chambers
