Dave Alan Walker

Bronze Star - 2,580 Points (Pudsey, Leeds)

Works And Pensions


Arms outstretched
screaming to be heard
but nobody listens
to the man with no name

We are just cattle
walking the line to market
waiting for retirement day

    a bitter truth so clearly and so briefly presented!
    you represented them so aptly! (Report) Reply

    Walking like cattle in a line hoping to go to the bull market for retirement. Nice poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    It seems not to matter
    which half of the heard were in
    front or back
    milking cows
    once our productive days are
    over well it's time to hurry up and die....iip (Report) Reply
