Two of a series of Christmas cards produced in 1984 by Rhymney Valley Miners Support Group during the Miners Strike in Britain.
(I have two more which I shall post too -many thanks to the sender)
The First Card contains a poem entitled ‘Kids Questions’ which begins
amid the quiet of the night.
Children don’t understand this fight.
They don’t know or realise,

The Second Card has a poem ‘The Death of a Lady’ which begins..

now she’s an ugly broken hag….
