The times are a changing ......

The times are a changing ......

A Poem by Dawn

The churches are closing.
The pubs are shutting down.

Nowhere for the kids to play
So they hang out on the streets
and get into trouble by the police.

Doggie pooh, on the pavements,
mind your step, before you stand on some.

Neighbours not as friendly
as they used to be.
Front doors locked constantly.
No hello or goodbye.
From anyone.
Friendly neighbours are long gone.

Kids are killing kids with guns
and a knife.
It's so common now.
That it happens nearly every day.

Public transport fares and tickets
constantly rising.
To where the point
is your cheaper getting a taxi,
instead of a bus. 

And if your planning on using a train.
Oh my Lord. I hope you can afford the fare.
As at those prices nowadays
it is cheaper to travel abroad
for a foreign holiday instead of on a train.

Some families can not even afford to eat.
So they all visit the "Local Food Bank"
just to be able to get some food to eat.

Homeless folk are dying on our streets.
As the rich get richer and the poor just
hopefully fade and die away.
Out of sight and out of mind.
For the rich to be bothered or to even to care.

How sad modern times are in this Country.
To where humanity is fade faster than a
lightning strike.
