THE BURSTON SCHOOL STRIKE RALLY (poem)

THE BURSTON SCHOOL STRIKE RALLY
(The Site of The Second Coming!)

The Party has an annual stall at the Rally.
Jeremy Corbyn visited this year on the 6/9/2015
and received a hero’s reception from the crowd.

J.C. walked on the water at,
The Burston Rally site;
And urged his new disciples to,
Go forth and fight the fight!
The war against the wicked cuts,
Made by that godless band;
The heathen Tories who had spoilt,
This green and pleasant land.

He then fed the Five-Thousand souls,
A fishy tale as bait;
How the New ‘Clause Four’ Testament,
Would consecrate the State.
The crowd cheered on and cheered some more,
The brass band’s trumpets blew;
As J. C. breached the walls against,
Old Satan’s Tory crew!

Us workers -- we should all be proud,
“Bah heck” and “Eeh by Gum”;
That J.C. and his entourage,
Have thrown us all a crumb.
One cloth cap tried to flog to us,
The Weekend ‘Morning Star’;
But we declined politely as,
That was a bridge too far!

And then J.C. went walkabout,
The faithful touched his beard;
Which to us simple socialists,
Was just a trifle weird!
Us revolutionaries were left,
To our respective fates;
As unbelievers happily,
Outside his Pearly Gates!
