 once upon a time

In rememberance of Jo Cox.

We try to  live under the banner of love

we try to help and love one another 

We try to be kind and steadfast 

We try lord knows we tried, but today we cried.


Under the banner of Britain first, lies a body 

Under the banner of hate lies a young woman

Under the banner of injustice the media thrive

Under the banner lies the MP for Birstall 


Can I ask why, why and how did this happen

Can I ask what happened, who is this tommy Mairs

Can I ask who are these  Britain first charlatans.

Can I ask also that an honorable woman be remembered


Not just by the fact that she was murdered

Not just by the fact that she was an MP

Not just by the fact that a mother lies dead

Not just by the fact of her name Jo Cox.


I ask we remember Jo Coxs love for humanity

I ask we remember all the banners Jo Cox fought under

I ask we remember the injustice perpetrated in Birstall

I ask we remember the life of Jo Cox labour MP.
