Library closures 

“Sligo libraries face closure due to council staff cuts”
A recent headline sparked the following short poem
The day they closed the library in

Sligo town.
They’re going to close the library in our town

Replace it with a burger joint, I frown

No money to pay the librarian they say.

Why not use your pension in a better way.
The children will have less to educate

But you have struck yourself a better rate

Be careful how you you hike the income tax

Your glass ceiling may end up with many cracks.
