Farewell to 2017

suwn new year

Now is that time of the year again

Turning, we look back from here, and then

Think about all that is gone:

Standing in front of the buroo again

Helping folk know what to do, and then

Passing the info on.

 

Helping as folk are assessed again

Seeing their record’s not messed, and then

Making sure benefit’s won.

Put right DWP again

Again and again and again and then

Blogging on what we’ve done.

 

More baseless charges in court again

Helping ensure they are fought and then

Defendant’s still sane and strong.

Meetings and marches and rallies again

Sharing of knowledge with allies, and then

Proving the system is wrong.

 

Fighting ’gainst sanctions and workfare again,

Show working for nothing is unfair and then

Most so-called training’s a con.

Sending our MSPs mail again

‘Do all you can without fail, and then

Ask for the powers to go on!’

 

Responding to news with a letter again

Journalists now should know better, and then

Checking the story will run

Banter and coffee-warmed hands again

Beach picnic, drinks and live bands, and then

Activists too can have fun

 

Now is that time of the year again

Turning, we look back from here, and then

Think about all that is gone –

Two friends who won’t see New Year again

Hazel and Chris are not here – but then

Memories always go on
