This is one of his most famous poems. I think it’s another great protest poem. A condemnation of the Thatcher era, how it laid waste to large sections of British cities.
“Keith Joseph smiles, and a baby dies,
in a box in Beasley Street”
Keith Joseph was a Minister in Thatcher’s government.
Beasley Street represents inner city northern England, but is not a real street. JCC said he chose the name because it was easy to rhyme!
