TITLE: Excuse me, Mr Prime Minister

Excuse me sir
I would just like to say
How chipper you are looking today
With a wave and a smile you are on your way

What thought of me do you give today
One who is walking a path chosen by so few?
Do you choose it?
I wonder
As you encourage mums to go out and work
Causing them their responsibilities to shirk
Is that the thing to teach?

To teach a generation
Go aní earn some money
Youíll be so happy
Helping the British economy

Why is it a need?
Does your wife need to go out to work?
Surely being the prime ministers wife
She can afford a more easy life?
Cutting back doesnít have to be so hard
Maybe doing without the flat, the expensive house
You wouldnít be living like a poor church mouse!

And who knows
In years to come
You might even get someone, coming up to you to say
Thank you for coming today
Thank you for showing me what a mum could be
Doing without things we really donít need
And looking above material greed
If you hadnít changed when God told you that day
Well I would have been called the latch key kid today

Your poem provoked me to think! I am not sure that I agreed with some of it. Some mothers need to work not because they are greedy for money but simply to make ends meet.

I liked this poem even if I know in today's economy it's not about settling for less for some families but about eating at all. But you are right about one thing; the leaders today aren't thinking too much how to help the small every day family.

This is a very good poem.
