Thatcher's Legacy (2006)


What of our busy Mill Towns now?
What of our shipyards roaring?

What of our coal mines – turned to dust?

And no more steel mills soaring

Once thriving towns reduced to ruin
Once youth had hope and trade

Once village galas still allowed

Fulfillment in the doing

No more alas will British cars
Speed workmanlike and brave

For greed and gain and profit now

Have sank them in their graves

Eddy Morrison 2006
