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,
Why their dad has tears in his eyes….

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

My GOD! What a legacy.
Dark grey hills of slag.
My valley was once beautiful,
now she’s an ugly broken hag….

Second Card
