Poetry – Cuts Cuts Cuts

Cuts  Cuts  Cuts

Cuts  Cuts  Cuts

                The infrastructure of society

                                Slowly eroded;

Transformed

                Into a profit-making

                                Business

Providing

                Wealth

                                For the elite.

Waves crash against the cliffs.

Sand blows against the rock.

Acid eats the substrate.

Cuts

                In education

Cuts

                In the NHS

Cuts

                In the police

Cuts

                In Social Services

Cuts

                In the Military

Cuts

                In Youth Services

The bedrock of society

                Is gradually

                                Dissolved

The emaciated carcass

                Is paraded

                                For sale.

Opher – 3.3.2022

Steadily, over the course of these last twelve years, the Tories have been dismantling the public services, running them down, depriving them of cash and selling them off piece by piece for profit.

Tax cuts and bungs for the wealthy. Life is all about profits. There are the haves and the have nots. Only money-makers are worthy. Everyone else is a parasite.

Private health care. Private dentistry. Private education. Private security.

Those who can afford it receive the best of care.

Those without the cash…………………..

I'd like to hear from you...
