I wouldn’t want to second guess
What will happen to the NHS
If the Tories have their way
For everyone will have to pay.
Not free to each man on the street
But prerogative of ‘the elite’.
Health is something we expect
Our flesh and blood, our intellect
All of it should work with ease
Yet modern stresses bring disease.
And this legacy of 1948,
Should make us fight because it’s great.
It’s open to Tory sly assaults
Because it has its many faults
And reform’s essential, must be faced,
To eliminate all kinds of waste.
So come on people, do your bit!
To the NHS we must commit,
So speak out now, be firm, be LOUD,
The NHS should make us proud!
It’s the envy of num’rous other nations,
So save it for future generations.
