What will you tell your Grandkids? By Pippa Bramley

What will you tell your Grandkids?
About Great Britain's shame,
And how humans froze to death on the streets,
While we played computer games!

How will you answer their questions?
When they ask you what went wrong?
Will you admit your distractions
Included voting for a song?

How will tell your Grandkids?
That as our NHS faded away,
We were staring at our smartphones,
And wasting away our days!

How will you explain to them?
That as our rights were taken blatantly,,
You were laughing at some toothless girl,
Watching Jeremy Kyle on BBC?

How will you answer their questions?
When they are living in Shanty Town's,
About how we let billionaire's and bankers
Bring our once fair nation down.

And how will you explain it?
When China is raising funds,
To help a little English girl,
Get clean water in her slums!

What will you tell your Grandkids?
When our country has gone to the pits,
About a time before they were born,
When we had freedom kids!

How will you face your Grandkids?
And explain to them the truth?
That when all this was happening,
We 'woz watching Big Brother Youff!'

I hope you'll be able to tell them,
I was campaigning in the streets,
I wasn't so easily distracted my child,
I fought for democracy!

I hope you'll be able to tell them,
I wasn't blindly accepting,
As the snoopers charter unveiled,
But rather I was campaigning,
As our democracy failed.
