A bit somber , but I thought I'd post it.

Big Ben

The clock strikes twelve
On New Year's Eve
Bringing in a brand new year
Does this change the status quo
The answer's no I fear
Unless attitudes are changed
And politicians use of power
A striking clock, won't bring in change
No matter what the hour
Unless we are more caring
And share with one and other
The New Year won't bring in change
It will be the same as any other.
