September dons its academic gown,
School bags are being packed, pencil cases filled,
Parents, if not all students, largely thrilled;
But don’t be hasty, schools are falling down.
Look out! Look out! The concrete is cracking,
Classrooms crumble and the roof could fall in,
Lock the gates before the term can begin,
It appears integrity is lacking
From the whole structure. Keeping down the cost
Was, remains and will be the situation
Whoever forms the administration.
Labour, LibDEm, Conservative – they all
Prioritise profit and capital.
