Building the building society

a poem about the founding of Nationwide by Jo Bell

A black and white empire
London 1884
The foundries churn out change
There’s far more smoke than air
And in this giddy town
Far more working heads
Than places to lay them down
You want your own roof
You better have pin stripes
And money to spare
Fortune favors the fortunate
Small change there
The butcher the baker the candlestick maker
Who thinks they matter
Mister Cooper does
Help each other and we all get up the ladder
Mister Cooper says
We all have a share
We all get a vote
We’re in the same boat
Stand together and build
A nation of helpers
A nation of houses with hopers inside
The currency of kindness
Nationwide
