1979

img

Meat and two veg

The order of the day

Egg and chips

Those trusty standbys

Powers cuts and strikes

Lock outs and riots

Calor gas evenings

Radio by candle light

The white heat of technology

The Tiber foaming red

Unfulfilled prophesies

Littered the dirty streets

Those were the days

Of sedentary bombs

In secret locations

Policemen & revolutionaries

Armies of occupation

The other Battle of Britain

Was waged in the dark

  1. It seems to me that nowadays people are numb, don't have hopes and matters to fight for. I don't like fights but to feel numb seems even worse to me. I was on the barricades in 1979 and that formed me, who i am now.....
