43: Our Library

Library 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 borrowed 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 will be sacked –
they may find jobs in Tesco’s –
where books aren’t freely stacked
