England my england what has become of you,
Unemployment and poverty theyre nothing new,
Once a world leader where everyone turned to us,
Now we’re a nation without any trust.
All our national companies sold off cheap,
Now we follow america like a lost sheep,
Always market leaders in everything we did,…
Till our major industries were sold to the highest bid.
British gas and telecom post office too,
And for the general public there was nothing we could do.
Don’t get me started on the state of schools,
And the fact our prisons are over full.
Homelessness and housing at an all time high,
No wonder so many friends have took their own life.
Then there’s the gap between
Rich and poor,
With every budget growing ever more,
Illness and addiction putting a greater strain,
On our NHS while they pay for high speed trains
Politicians lining their own pockets and those of their own,
When most can’t afford to buy their own home

When Lee sent this poem to us he requested that he could do with some feedback if possible.
So come on everyone let’s have some critique!
