‘Cracking on’ with HS2
Cancel this scheme,
Release us from your dream,
Awaken, clear your mind,
Correct what’s been designed,
Know the follies, they’re resounding,
Infrastructure needs good grounding ,
Not whimsical calculation,
Gifting little to our nation.
Only debt, beyond all owing,
Never paying off – just growing,
Why can’t you understand
Inherent cares about our land?
This train is never needed,
Heed the critics, who have pleaded,
Have a long and just reflection,
See the problems and take heed,
2 morrow a new direction is more likely to succeed.
