A POEM FOR OUR TIMES
WRITING ON THE WALL
A POEM BY JAY RAMSAY
People: it's time for us to join hands
and cross the great divide in our minds
speaking with our hearts for what is right.
We are powerful. A strong leader?
We're only weakened divided. Listen,
money and fear divide us - united we stand
in the family we are. United we blossom
in any corner of England, and that means
we abandon ego for each other -
we abandon the cynic for the lover
to make love, to make politics
what it must become, and then we're freed -
Love's Labour our sacred task, a leader
who can read the writing on the wall
says it like it is: a country's passionless fall
or England, Albion, a new dream rising?
A nation where we take care of one and all.
