Borrowed Books Stolen

Borrowed Books Stolen

The old library was closing down

Government austerity cuts destroying the town

Breaking up loved community assets one by one

Decades of precious, golden memories gone

No more borrowed books to savour

So, who did vote for this Tory favour?

Was not I says she, or he, or them

Denying a part in this ‘blue’ outcome

No more Joyce, Thomas or Dickens on loan

The Saucepan Man and Little Miss Sunshine now sit alone

New unaffordable, private housing will replace their stories

Exchanged by the same old, greedy Tories.
