Ian McMillan - The Bard Of Barnsley

Thanks go to Ian McMillan, the Bard of Barnsley who has penned this on behalf of those opposed to the Coalition Cuts; for more go to http://www.uktouring.org.uk/ian-mcmillan/


YOU CAN CALL IT COALITION
A POEM WITH A GREAT BARNSLEY RHYME AT THE END!

You can call it coalition
I call it demolition
These men are on a mission
To cut us till we bleed!

They have no hesitation
To them it’s celebration
The Cuts Express has left the station
And it’s travelling at speed!

And all we can do is raise our voice
Express our forthright opposition
Remind everybody there is a choice:
It’s not rocket science or nuclear fission.
There’s another fairer, kinder way
Than blaming the poor and making them pay.

And if all we can do is raise our voice
Then raise it till they hear the sound
Of protest rising from the streets
Of anger rising from the ground
And if all we can do is raise our voice
Then let’s raise it now while we have the choice
And if all we can do is raise our voice
Let’s raise it now…or think what we’ll loyse!
