Eton Boys Dreams Come True – Written August 2011 (Aged 36)

Eton Boys Dreams Come True

the right are moving in
fixed, targeted, ‘values’,
that scupper hopes of a more cohesive unit
some call it society
but right now,
some with brooms in hand
they fight for the streets
the type of streets that others took
but the right is moving in
they know, sadly,
that this could be their moment to justify further ideals
that will not fit a, ‘sick society’
it will only make society more ill
this is the eton boy’s moment
those beliefs he thought may slip from his grasp
now, they have come true in his mind
i cry inside, the right though, they think, at last

James Garratt – August 2011
