Our Library

Libraries’ hours will reduce,
their lending overdue:
Google will then charge us all
for e-book content view.

Our library is all knowledge,
day-long care and quiet reads,
our vast bookmark will be lost
if all we do is cede:

Loved tomes will not open,
nor the library’s oft locked-doors,
no free church for free readers,
we have to fight for more.

Less bookworm-work for staff,
all that knowledge has been sacked,
they may find jobs in Tesco’s,
where books aren’t freely stacked.
