Stitched Up. - Poem by guy lipmore

‘STITCHED UP'

IT WAS AN EMPHATIC REJECTION,
ALL SITES MADE THE SELECTION.
MORE THAN 98% OF UNION VOTED NO,
OUR COLLECTIVE STRENGTH WE SHOW.
FROM COLLECTIVE BARGAINING,
THE‘BALL'IS BACK TO THEM.

A‘MESSAGE'WE WERE SENDING,
INDUSTRIAL ACTION PENDING.
HOLIDAY, TWO WEEKS AWAY,
GOT BACK, IT'S ALL GONE ASTRAY.!

COMPANY PROPOSAL AMMENDED.!
UNION COMPRIMISED AND SURRENDED.!
SIMILAR‘DEAL'AT A PRICE,
THERE WAS AN EXTRA SACRIFICE.! !
A SECTION HAVE‘NO VOTE'SUDDENLY,
SO MUCH FOR YEARS OF LOYALTY.
NO MORE SAY ON THE‘DEAL',
UTTER TRAVESTY WE FEEL.
NO MORE PART TO BE PLAYED,
FEELING BITTER AND BETRAYED.
‘SOLD'DOWN THE RIVER,
STITCHED UP LIKE A KIPPER.
