The effects of austerity measures, occasioned by Recession on once a common wealth of friendly people well depicted in the poem. It's a lovely piece of poetry, well articulated, nice encapsulated and penned with insight to capture the conviction of the poet. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
