In Britain's southwest, a dome of rust,
Hinkley Point C, a plant robust.
A crane hoists high, a monumental feat,
Nuclear power, a future to greet.

Years pass by, construction drags on,
Delays plague, costs now begone.
√Člectricit√© de France, a warning sound,
Completion distant, the project bound.

The first since the nineties, a nuclear tale,
Hinkley Point struggles, the industry frail.
A concrete saucer, a symbol in the land,
A reminder of challenges, as delays expand.

Oh, Hinkley Point, a goal in sight,
Yet time and money continue their fight.
A flagship project, a dream awry,
Nuclear power, under the British sky.
