Money walked in

with promises.

Built factories,

handed out,

among other problems,

silicosis, pneumoconiosis, asbestosis.

Due to progress

plans changed.

New promises emerged.

Nuclear reactors arrived

spraying people with radiation.

When the switches were thrown

and the lights came on

the suits,

(living far away from reactors)

smiled with pride.

Meanwhile doctors

treating leukaemia, tumours, cancer,

tightened their own straight-jackets

as the Health Service

went bankrupt.
