#100wcgu legacy

Legacy, that is the brand new "in" word
All about London2012 and from it what will remain;
It's focused on buildings, infrastructure and stuff
Rather than on what our society will gain

Where are the thoughts for the ones so in need?
Those without work, pride or health?
If this was the focus then legacy would
Be worth all the time, energy and wealth.

Do not get me wrong, I approve of the plans
For housing and schools and green space
But I'd like to see within it some social reform
For those who's lives can't ever keep pace
