Post subject: The Specials / Just In Time (Poem) Reply with quote

I turned on my radio just in time to hear The Specials And Rico it was 1979

Terry Hall was the singer with a deadpan voice and a stare that could see through freezing ice

Jerry and Roddy wrote music with a message to you Neville did the toasting and Lynval played the rhythm fe true

Brad was the drummer Horace played Bass and when Dick played his cornet it was the in place

I turned on my Computer just in time to watch The Specials on Jools Holland it was 2009.

They are all in there, It's all there Paul.
A contemplative story about listening to much more than 'just' the music.
First class.

I woke up.
It was morning.
I thought 'bollocks'
as I was yawning.

I like it Chuck.

It was like a whole Ken Loach script wrapped up in comedy verse.

there was a young man called scott
who found a pimple on his bot
he looked with dispair
at his pubic hair
then tied his dick in a knot.....


there was an old perv called ave
who stored hookers in a cave
he must have had pluck
to have a cold fuck
but look at the money he saved...........

They came they exploded and quickly disappeared

Now they're back with sore backs and flogging pricey gear.

Here's an old one.........



I canít love you or hate you
For political reasons.

What politics? You snarl,

Buying bread, and doing shitty farts
That kind of thing.

Beer before noon and bed before ready steady cook,
Doing what I want,
You know
my politics.

Ignorance, you sneer, you mean your ignorance.

I probably do,
but I know that I donít

I mean waking when I choose
And not fearing a boss
And not doing a shift in a factory
Like a blind dog chasing itís own arse

Make that blind dog answer
from the inside of the cage
being part of not separate
working tight lipped for a wage
wait out the man who can but be
toppled by The Union strategically
use judicial law and human rights
to place line workers human plight
you have to join then fight them
play them beat them at their game.

They tell you not to worry
They say they're terribly sorry
But that's the way it has to be
For the likes of me
Just be good and know your station
Always look on the bright side
Keep your faith and keep your patience
Your reward is after you've died

So don't be told
Don't be consoled
Things are so bad
You can never make do
And there's always someone
better off than you

They tell you that's your future
It's all down to human nature
Simply settle for what you got
That's destiny and that's your lot
All of us cannot come first
Yes, what you have is second-best
But it might be a good deal worse
Third world peasants get even less

So don't be told
Don't be consoled
Things are so bad
You can never make do
And there's always someone
better off than you

Do you care that it's not fair?
Is this the way we have to live?
I know I care
And I want an equal share
Even if it means I have to give

The people who are on top
Say that you should keep your chin up
And they are keen to show you
The unhappy ones below you
But I want no more of that stuff
That's looking at it upside down
And the world has got money enough
For us to make it go around

Don't be told
Don't be consoled
Don't be ruled
Don't be fooled
Because things are so bad
you can never make do
And there's always someone
better off than you
