I love John’s great poetry. He encapsulates so much.
This is a poem he wrote that tackles the victims of this bastard Tory Governments onslaught on the poor and public services which they call austerity.
I’m sure the rich bastards who are revelling in the increases they have had as hand-outs from this nasty bunch won’t care about Emily. They’ll laugh all the way to the bank
Emily’s Gone – by John
Emily Lush has died in vain
No bell to toll a sad refrain
To mark her passing. Who will see
Injustice and iniquity?
But simply say ‘She was insane.’
Her fellow citizens remain
Indifferent to her life and pain
Without remorse or empathy
Now Emily Lush has died.
The Government will not pertain
To comment, reason or explain
For victims of austerity
Yet block attempts to ascertain
Why Emily Lush has died.
