Here we have a remix of a piece I wrote years ago for my anthology, Scribblology V2.
I decided to look at it again, and re-evaluate it. Bring it up to date. So here it is. I hope you enjoy it, but do let me know what you think.
Stay Safe X
Estate of Mind (2019 Remix)
Bob W Christian
Take a walk down a dark memory lane with me…
A nightmare experiment on social deprivation.
These ends have seen better days; boys from
Eton messed up – screwed us over for a profit.
Calling us drunks, criminals, feckless idiots,
Looking down from your nonflammable towers.
We can’t ignore this horror story like you can.
Streets littered with heroin needles; hell-raising
Flames shooting from cars; replacing the broken lamps,
Lighting up the desperate estate of mind we call reality.
“Get a job, save up, better yourself, pull yourself out
Of austerity. Climb that property ladder”,
While living cheque-to-cheque. Can’t deposit on zero hours.
Withdrawing food from banks; it’s no way to live.
We really are in this together, fighting to survive.
