Magpie 94












LAST WEDNESDAY

The public workers go on strike
Unhappy with their lot;
With working hours, and frozen pay,
And dwindling pension pot.
But unions, like other folk,
Enjoy a bite of lunch.
In Unison, they take a sip,
In Unison, they munch.

  3. The picture looks like strike and protest and mob, and as Jinsky says, it is topical right now.

  4. Nice one, Frances. It's a good job Clarkson wasn't writing this. Lot, pot and shot would be more his style.

  5. Wow! Loved it! The images are flawless, and capitalizing the word "unison" was a master stroke!
