Poetry – Rise up!

Rise up!

 

The government is planning

To take away your rights

To cut your pay and your holidays

They think that you won’t put up a fight.

 

Rise up! Rise up! Good people!

Rise up for what is fair!

Rise up! Rise up and unite!

Show them that you care!

 

The government is seeking

To drop the environment laws

To pollute your blood, your neighbourhood

And build on the great outdoors.

 

Rise up! Rise up! Good people!

Rise up for what is fair!

Rise up! Rise up and unite!

Show them that you care!

 

What becomes of the profits

That the bosses will draw down?

To the Cayman Isles for tax exiles

Anywhere out of town.

 

Rise up! Rise up! Good people!

Rise up for what is fair!

Rise up! Rise up and unite!

Show them that you care!

 

They think that you are sheeple

Not like your fathers before.

Who fought for rights despite the slights

And were sick of being poor.

 

Rise up! Rise up! Good people!

Rise up for what is fair!

Rise up! Rise up and unite!

Show them that you care!
