Poetry on the Picketline An Injury To One by Jordan Roberto

They said “Left Unity” and I thought
“that would be a good idea.”
A fear now proved well founded.
We hang together or hang separately.
Still, better red than dead, it would appear.

Trade union democracy sometimes leads to a little tension.

Poetry on the Picket Line is a squad of like-minded poets putting themselves about to read their work on picket lines, in the spirit of solidarity.

Invitations to rallies etc welcome, contact facebook.com/PicketLinePoets.

The new Poetry on the Picket Line anthology is available at culturematters.org.uk
