'When Just The Tide Went Out'

Last night as I lay sleeping
When dreams came fast to me
I dreamt I saw JERUSALEM
Beside a tideless sea
And one dream I’ll remember
As the stars began to fall
Was Banksy painting Alun Wyn
On my neighbour’s garage wall
And dreams like that sustain me
Till these darkest times have past
And chase away the shadows
No caring night should cast
But times like this can shine a light
As hardship often can
To see the best in people
And the good there is in man
And I remember Swansea with nobody about
When the shops were closed like Sunday
And just the tide went out

And I remember Mumbles with the harbour in its keep
And the fishing boats at anchor that trawl the waters deep
And I heard the seabirds calling
As the gulls all wheeled about
But all the town was sleeping now
And just the tide went out

And when these days are over
And memories remain
Of children painting Rainbows
When the sun shone through the rain
And I thought of all the nurses who stretchered all the pain
And I hope they never get to see a time like this again
And I prayed last week for Boris
Who knocked on Heavens door
And I thought of voting Tory, which I’ve never done before
And though the sun is shining now I’ve no immediate plans
So I’ll write a book on ‘Staying In’ and ‘Ways To Wash Your Hands’
And I’ll remember mornings with nobody about
When the shops were closed like Sunday
And just the tide went out.

That another inappropriate comment I can’t post. Political correctness (in my head) gone mad.

Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes
Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes
Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will…
