To poppy or not to poppy

  1. on Anzac Day

    Time to wear the Black Poppy again,
    In memory of comrades and trade unionists,
    Who fought for and sacrificed,
    To preserve their way of life.
    For the 40 hour week,
    A single livable family wage,
    Fascism would have denied them this.
    So has capitalism. They spin in their grave.
    They fought in fields of mud,
    And over rocks of uneven terrain,
    They fought and died for trade unionisim,
    They fought, but died in vain.
    Lest we forget,
    That slogan’s now so rotten
    And should be changed, to,
    We have already forgotten.
