Going backward its our choice!


So many  children died young

the valley had the highest

infant mortality rate in the land

death stared in at every door

I lived in a time and a place

where so many spoke

with horror of the means test

memories of hunger

and  much more

is this what we want

where we return to

you who have no knowledge

of such times of hardship

be wise in the way you vote

be wise in the choice you make.
