For Leeds City Council 7 (Time For A New Beginning) - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Destroyed by the prospects
of what you want
everything turning to dust

People turning into statues
ready to be put
where you want them to go

You are the vultures of death
waiting for the faces of the future
so you can destroy
the souls underneath

We are shedding our skins
like a snake in the wild
hoping our new self will survive

We are ready for a new beginning
