Stand Up. Stand Proud. by David R Mellor

Your belly won’t go empty

And there will be more to go around

 

This is the “United” Kingdom

Stand up. Stand proud.

 

Don’t step over your neighbour

Sleeping on the streets

Don’t let our cities crumble

Forced to beg

At foodbanks

For something to eat

 

This is the “United” Kingdom

Stand up. Stand proud.

 

Share and share alike

Is what we said at the playground

Think of others is what your mother drilled into you

So all can sleep safe and sound

 

This is your “United” Kingdom

This is our “United” Kingdom

Stand up. Stand proud.
