For the Many Not the Few

The Personal Is Political

For the Many Not the Few

They think we’re too young

to know any better.

They think we’re too young

to speak out against them.

But we are the youth.

And we are angry.

With their cuts and costs

they try to freeze us out.

Creating a world where we

feel lost, but we will not

give up.

United, we will rise against them.

This life we are living is not the one

we want to live.

If the rich just put their hands in

their pockets and learnt how to give

This country would be far better

for me and you.

A country that serves the many,

not just the few.
