Vote Now..

By Scott Bailey © 2017

Dancing
Is on the box
Again
Glitter and glam
Tune in
Vote Now ….

Singing
Is on the box
Again
Tremulous crescendos
Tune in
Vote Now …

National pride
Is on the box
Again
In or out
Walk in
Vote Now …

Politics
Is on the box
Again
Smiles and lies
Walk in
Vote Now …

So choose your side
Take a stance
Have your favourite
And fight
Never stopping to think
That the fight is the point
Division
Of the flock

The Politician, The Voter and the Child

By Scott Bailey © 2015

 

You work hard

I struggle by

In the dark

You’re a hard-working family

To pay my bills

A silent dark

You deserve more

To keep my job

Shattered by

Respect and remuneration

My family safe

A scream so stark

Higher wage

Bills accrue

A sister torn

More tax

No breaks in sight

A mother too

Security

I am undermined

And then my turn

Here they come

By cheaper crews

To be their tool

To take your jobs

And labour pools

Alone I lived

We try to stop them

Let down by those

My family died

But the law demands

For who we fought a war

Alone I ran

Freedoms we ill afford

Belts pulled tight

Alone to hide

So we must let them in

Doors shut tight

Far away

We need your fear

As our land

Where wars don’t rage

So let us pass

Slips away

Across the sea

Stronger laws

Dreams of the past

Into a cage

And take your cash

Of golden days

And forms and forms

For a better way

Seem far away

And questions long

Altogether now

Every man for himself

And looks of scorn

Watch your backs

Seems the only way

And acts of wrong

Strengthen our national pride

So I must take a stand

Drowning in

Defend our ways

Against the tide

A stinking sea

Our traditions

That seems to me

I cry

Like class division

To rise and rise

No one pities me

And stay an island proud

To drown our island’s pride

No one pities me

Together

By Scott Bailey © 2014

Yet another step
Up the winding stairs to you
Slide down together
