Forty. New. Hospitals.

Who knew
that new need not actually mean new?
It might mean refurbished or extended,
repurposed or pretended?
Who knew?

Who’d have thought it,
that forty need not actually mean forty?
That’s rather naughty
It ought to, surely?
I’d have thought

Who considered it possible
that hospital might not mean hospital?
That it might mean just a ward
or a paint job the Trust can only just afford
How is that possible?

Because everyone knows that Tories
tell tall tales and whopping stories –
Don’t they?
