They’re stepping things up
closing things down
and keeping us safe in
old London town.
An old man told me
that the country
is going to the dogs,
closed years ago.
Pastimes are taken away every day,
a little bit here and dab on some fear
then they’ll take a little bit more.
When they close down the subway, the railway,
the day will be darker, the streets will be busier,
will we be any safer or just tired?
