Unpardonable. (A Poem Of Britain) Or In The Beginning Was The Word.....
Prophetic words sung of 'Maggie's Farm'.
Remembering the horror and harm.
Squandered production so undeserved.
Resilient stronghold was 'the word'.
Power to deny; self satisfied.
Blindness, mindless of those crucified.
Black of bleakest days when Miner's struck
rose, rallied and tossed coins in buckets
somewhere in the youth of '84
never to work on her farm no more.
The King of the Scallies holding court
bravely spoke of her lack of support;
a pint, through laughter and all agreed:
Wholly ignored what work one might need
'To be dragged down the Mall by the hair'
said he; we thought that was pretty fair.
Prophetic words sung in 'Maggie's Farm'.
Evidence of her havoc, her harm.
Squandered generation; undeserved.
Resilient stronghold still 'the word'.
