The age I were born into - in 1953
The Welfare State - were established
From conception to grave
A safety net to catch those in need
A Health Service - The N H S - second to none!
Now all that of The Labour government voted in - in 1945!
Welfare State - 1948!
Now under threat - underfunded!
Privateers now lay in wait!
The Safety Net - now full of holes - many oh so many fulling through!
The hopes - the expectations - of 1945 - fading into memory's of those who voted Then for The Labour Party!
Despairing people - in fear - wait!

The NHS is still there against all odds, but as you succinctly put it "full of holes." Your last word "wait" says it all and the queues get longer. Happy New Year Ken.
