People: it’s time for us to join hands
and cross the great divide in our minds
speaking with our hearts for what is right.
We are powerful. A strong leader ?
We’re only weakened divided. Listen,
money and fear divide us—united we stand
in the family we are. United we blossom
in any corner of England, and that means
we abandon ego for each other—
we abandon the cynic for the lover
to make love, to make politics
what it must become, and then we’re freed—
Love’s Labour our sacred task, a leader
who can read the writing on the wall
says it like it is: a country’s passionless fall
or England, Albion, a new dream rising ?
A nation where we take care of one and all.
