Light A Candle

It’s cold very cold

And some folk have snow

Ice and frost is everywhere

And folk are feeling low

Trains aren’t running

Folk on strike

NHS brought low

And teachers too are striking

How low can we go?


And war is raging in Ukraine

Bombs and missiles there

Putin isn’t talking

What’s really in the air?

USA and China

Power struggles of the globe

And poor folk will cop it

They always bear the load


And Harry missed a penalty

Now there’s a how do you do

But the cricketers are doing fine

So I guess we’ll all come through

The global scene the local scene

All one dreary mess

We need to be doing better

For our children now I guess

+ Better to light a candle than to curse the dark.
