Clockwork Inequality

The election on 8th June has the chance of making this poem obsolete.  If we return a Labour government, equality will have a new home.

Steve Pearson Poetry

Follow society’s lines they say
Step in time to step their way
Keeping your social stratum at bay
Behind the line is where you’ll stay

It’s all about the status quo
Always this and always so
Eons come and eons go
And still society’s shadows grow

This life is your bag right here
A little, little-man career
Living life in a lower gear
Shackled to your fags and beer

The race is a fait-accompli son
The prizes are already won
No need to fire a starting gun
The equality race has already run
