A response to welfare reform - a poem

by SSP Campsie member "Socialist Anon"

Scotland 2013

We were forged in the fire of hardship,
Within which we are melted into one another
From which we emerge stronger, flexible, able to withstand
It is no longer clear where you begin and I end
We are forever linked arm in arm - a never ending chain
“We are responsible for one another”
That is why if you should be harmed,
though you are far from me,
though I do not know your name
or even see your face
I will stand up for you.
I am prepared to stand in front of you

For we are forever connected and I shall forever feel your pain.
