Counting The Pennies

Hey everyone another poem in support of independence. This time the topic is a crisis made in Britain. I refer of course to the financial crisis which started during the Blair Brown Darling years and condemns us all in a Cameron Clegg austerity coalition and illustrates perfectly why Scotland and posh kids can never be better together. I’ve called it counting the pennies and hope you find it a thought provoking read.

Counting The Pennies

Counting the pennies
bills to be paid
practical Scot
dreams have to wait

Counting the pennies
as the pounds fade away
then I get statements
with something to say

Counting the pennies
counting the cost
of Brown bombs and bankers
but all is not lost

Cautious we may be
stupid we’re not
Darling we’re leaving the penny has dropped

@ Gayle Smith 2013
