Pity the Dodo (Oct 1985)

October 24th 1985
The day they closed Corton Wood -
GOD BLESS THE ALAMO

PITY THE DODO

Is it over then, the Struggle
Have they won, and have we lost
Is the final outcome what we should expect
Shall we ‘wake up’ in a year or so
And realise the cost
When it’s much too late to save our self respect

Should we ‘give the ghost up gracefully’
And slowly fade away
Should we disappear
Like out of date machines?
Well, I tell you
If you feel like I do
‘That’ll be the day’
You can’t make Dodos
Out of Human Beings
