What about the workers?

A lot of water
has flowed over the bridge.
The past is under our thumbprints.

Let us breathe the air
through brand new nostrums.

Let us protect
those with a weak constitution,
by helping them cross
the middle of the road.

Love and marriage
go together like a hackneyed carriage.

Stone walls do not
a prism make.

What has happened
is under our belts
and over our shoulders
and behind our backs.

Open our throats:
two swallows do not make
the medicine go down
the medicine go down
the medicine go down.

If you are down,
you can only go up
in a puff of smoke.

Don't sleep in the subway, darling.


From Tony Blair reminds me of a budgie

I want to build a nation .... in which our children can bring up their children with a future to look forward to. - Tony Blair 1994

Let us build, but let us build surely...Let us go forward to the future which is to come. - Peter Sellers, 1958
