The workhouse

Heavy steps through

“The Archway Of Tears”

blow your candles out

at 8 o clock here,

you leave the house?

You lose your meal!

The severity of the law you’ll feel

when you’re locked up in a refractory cell,

Litchfield Street is worse than hell,

turn the capstan,

grind the corn,

Matron wakes you

at the crack of dawn,

we forget so easily,

we get fat and bald  in front of the T.V,

take time to read article 1.20

and spare a thought for these poor souls

 Robert Maccartney

Is it the end ?

The clock strikes twelve the end has come

The beer, the lager, and the whisky has gone

But it is not the end

But a new beginning

The start of a brand new year

For everyone,

2012 and the world’s having fun

A year for all new things to be done

A new job, to earn a few bob,

New seeds to sow, then see them grow

Is something we did a year ago

So happy new year to everyone

Because a new year just begun

Thomas Sims
