Merthyr Tydfil

In Merthyr Tydfil...

...We Work¦

The Constituents Of Labour And Duress,
Honing Skills Years Taken,
Unpaid For Only Spoken,
From The Framework Of Hope,
Statutory Or Otherwise,
Persuaded Into Work,
Under The Minimum Of Wages,
Regardless Of Education, Choice Or Whim.


For Sixteen Years Her Mother Spoke Constant,
Only Thirteen Years Her Elder,
About The Witches Assessment,
That Could Take Rest,
At The Axis Of This Town,
Where The Good Sign On In Droves,
To An Explanation Quarry,
And Their Causes,
To The Frowns Of The Bureaucrats,
The Price You Pay,
For Shearing Against The Grain.

¦And Drink¦

The Bottom Of This Bottle,
Has Been Poured Into A Pint Glass,
It Fits¦And There's A Math In That,
So Here Is Where We Croak On,
About The Potential Of The Valley,
And The Future Of A People,
Whose Only Simple Crime Is That,
They Were Not Born In England,
From 1500bc Onwards,
Have Only Connections To Themselves,
To Family,
To Friends,
And Everyone Else's Lover.
