Conservative Health Care After Edmund Spenser The Faerie Queen Book Ii - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

See British youth war weary with unemployment
was by Cameron's coalition lately led away,
with wretched miseries, and woefull truth,
were to employers made a hopeless prey.
Time witness bears to beings' brief buffet
except for rich who, well insured for years,
waste while the poor essentials lack, dismay
Increased by Bill of Commons and of Peers
dismemb'ring N.H.S. with crocodile tears.

The weary Britons, whose war-hable youth
Was by Maximian lately led away,
With wretched miseries, and woefull ruth,
Were to those Pagans made an open pray,
And dayly spectacle of sad decay:
Whom Romane wars, which now four hundred years,
And more had wasted, could no whit dismay;
Till by consent of Commons and of Peers,
They crowned the second Constantine with joyous tears.
