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
