To Leeds City Council And The Tour De France - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

Families losing their homes
not knowing which way to turn
not been able to sleep at night
dreading the morning light

What will the Tour De France
do for the people of Leeds
who are losing their homes
to the bedroom tax

    Does it not point out the need for population control.
    The fewer the people the fewer services needed and the need for more taxes.

    This bedroom tax seems to affect lot of people who are already in a home. The poem brings the problem to attention of many readers. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    When the tax man comes knocking
    Rudely at your bed room door
    One cannot help empathizing
    At folks who have to climb out of windows
    Every thing is being taxed these days
    For the common good the powers say
    And one day this every air we breathe
    will be taxed by the breaths we take

    (Good poem sir - keep writing)
