Strike. - Poem by guy lipmore

Eleven plus years,
of frustration, enough is a enough,
Right or wrong, hopes and fears.
we called their bluff.
We will not win against this corporate giant,
at best cause them some embarrassment.

So hear we stand,
fight or fall.
We've shown our hand,
it's our call.

Raining on the picket line,
acting optimistic.
Underneath not so fine,
being realistic.
They were well prepared, no doubt,
before our action, the work was‘shared out'

Against them I stood firm,
but more money I can't lose,
I will not go full term,
Further action, I'll have to refuse…

    A fantastic poem, sometimes we have to stand up for whats right, but we also have to remember
    we have to be able to live, a great write.
