Socialist Sonnet No.111

School Failings


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.
