DRUG-ADDICT CLINIC ON YOUR STREET... JULY 11TH,2013


DRUG-ADDICT CLINIC ON YOUR STREET … July 11th,2013
By
James Bredin

If they put a drug-addict clinic on your street; you will know,
You will no doubt meet the addicts coming and going to and fro,
The media moguls and the activists all claim this is great,
And there is definately no need for any debate.




And they claim they have the evidence to prove they are right,
Will drug addicts be passing your door in the middle of the night?
And will they buy their expensive illegal drugs somewhere nearby?
Is it possible that a criminal drug addict could be a nice guy?




But you don’t have to worry; the politicians havn’t decided yet,
Though all the indications are, that they will and you wont forget,
But your taxes will go up again to pay for this and that,
This should make you very happy - not like you’re in combat.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
