5 July 1948 by Maggie Mackay

I am not a silent poet

Hold on, hold on Aneira, youngest of seven,

and first born in a hospital. Hold on

for the midnight strike, to be firstborn,

to be named for Bevan, on the first day of the NHS.

We didn’t have the shilling and sixpence before,

don’t need it now. Down with charges.

Universalise the best. Do no harm, Mr Hunt.
