Living on the Benefits System
Is a sentence and never a choice!
The Able ask:
‘Can you work, talk or walk?’
Do you want to buy a wheelchair?
Blue Badge? Bus Pass? Audition for your life?
We are not made of money!
Yes – you pay your tax…
But so do we!
Discrimination and recrimination!
Can you lift a box?
Drive a forklift?
Dig a hole?
Did you declare your change of circumstances?
Mental health deviation.
Prison is threatened…
A poem by Adrian Chan-Wyles (Registered Blind)
