I have listened toyour stories



Heard your talk on Human Rights

It’s warmed the cockles of my heart

On many a Bastion night.

The next time I come across, 

And I know I surely will

The indiscriminate victim

Of a Taliban kill



I won’t get upset 

Or have any sleepless nights 

I’ll know the Tali did it in defence 

Of his version of Human Rights

And when we leave this country

After years of combat and bravery

And the Afghani woman are

Returned to their Burkha’d slavery



And ISIS cross the channel

Because our security is so bad

And unleashed chaos on the streets 

In pursuit of their Jihad

And they demand Sharia law

In my native England 

I’ll try to stay calm

And try to understand



And I won’t get upset 

And try not to hate

Those religious fanatics with views

Five hundred years out of date

For I have listened to your story

Heard you speak of Human Rights

It’s warmed the cockles of my heart

On many a Bastion night,
