The Right to Stand Tall ©

Robbie Kennedy Bennett
Wolverhampton, England

The common decency of the working class,
Is a jewel in the crown and should never let pass.
It provides the strength to fight many wars,
It keeps things clean and does all chores.
It awakes at dawn and works through night.
It should know when to reason and settle a fight.
It has no airs but perhaps has graces,
It is noticed whenever in the grandeur of places.
However you feel as you walk through your next door,
You've the right to stand tall as your father before.
