so the class system as gone! erm...i dont think so  

Unseen faces behind the hoods
Gives off a sinister feel!
Ashen faced while lost in space
Like onions you forever peel.

As cars cruise round our neighbourhoods
It’s like a scene from “Shaun of the dead”.
They Take the dough and pass the bud
And drive off with the bread.

In days gone by you only had 10%
That controlled the uneducated masses.
So now they have closed the road if you can’t pay the toll
That halved the higher educational classes!

As firestorms burn though the night
That glows red and reflect in your eyes.
Your heart will sink to lower depths
As we mourn at the funeral pyres

I guess Education is not intelligence
I don’t get blinded by what I hear.
Yet “the man “still holds the bigger stick!
That beats us with words of fear!

The head of the snake has many heads
While the angels weep in vain.
You can see them scrambling for the doors
And try To get out on the very last train.

Told with passion and fire. Life can be harder for some than others. Depends a lot on where you're born. Liverpool has a reputation, particularly around the docks, of being a very tough town indeed.

No Joe, please. If anyone cares enough to comment on mine, I like to return the compliment in kind. When I congratulate someone, on a job well done, I expect at least a courtesy call back, otherwise there's no point, but for honest comments, I sometimes make, which are not words of praise, I don't expect a response. I think it's all about honesty and fairness..
