The Perfect Place To Live.

One man one vote if we get it
Will put things right for good
We'll all live in peace and harmony
The perfect place to live, love thy neighbour
Green tea with orange biscuits will be the norm
There will be Paddy Sean, Billy and Fred
All under one peaceful household roof
You see one man one vote is the missing link.

But this green land was covered with peoples blood
It the price you pay you see if we don, t agree
One man vote will change everything wait and watch
The vote was won, what next just wait and see
If the ten demands are met and prisoners are free
We'll all live in peace and harmony
The perfect place to live, love thy neighbour.

Votes, flags, free to walk, born to pray in a different way
Let resolve all we are told one by one
Then they will agree to put down their guns
We can live and work, hopefully see another day
When the battles won just wait and see
We'll all live in perfect harmony
The perfect place to live, love thy neighbour.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
