Brian William Haw

Brian William Haw stood strong
He never quit his whole life long
His principles oozed forth peace
He strongly believed that he wasn't wrong

Brian's life was influenced
By his dad's suicide incident
After serving in the war
Brian now for peace convinced

As a Christian believer
Haw worked with young non-achievers
Troubled youth who needed change
So that society not griever

He soon began his campaign
One man political reign
A political protest
For his children's future domain

He was supported by some
Many saw him as just dumb
Friends of his cause fed him
Parliament gave him a down thumb

Parliament did not like his scene
Nothing tried stopped the routine
Arrest, court dates didn't slow
He survived on poor cuisine

His protest only by death ceased
Lung cancer his life did seize
Tobacco the enemy beast
Soon from this life gave release

Domain_a particular environment or walk of life
