A Poem For Friday

Not from me, so you can all relax. Gerry, the Voice Of Pier 32, pointed me at a piece by poet Martin Powell entitled The Power Of Young People. Here's an extract:

"With will and skill we can fulfil our social obligations; to build rapports, to open doors and lead investigations, 
Into every clause of current laws of rules and legislation, so everybody has the right to insight and information. 
And through our new communion of communal communication, 
We’ll march streets across the nation, trust in transformation, 
And get these corporations cooperating together; for a future that’s bright, whatever the weather."
This ties perfectly into the theme of next week's posts, when I want to talk more about welfare reform and our obligations as both individuals and a society, particularly in view of upcoming legislation that will have major impacts on charities and their ability to do their work. You can read the whole thing at the link below. Please do.

Have a great weekend, everyone.
