Commentary
Another piece of 1980s British social commentary.

This duet contrasts the circumstances and motives

of 2 people on a socialist March for Jobs.


 Blob described the end bit as sounding like a very mechanical office environment.








We march for jobs, the right to work.

to earn the keep of those I love.

Bleak queues we form to sign our names.

Calendars pass.  This line's the same line.                                        


Home sweet home where my heart fades

in shade unthreatened by light.        

Stuck in shut snap-shot albums                

family smiles of the past...                

Are they the last of them?       

   We March for Jobs, the Right to Work

for others' sakes, for my job is safe.

The Government must change its ways

and face the truth staring in our faces.


Meanwhile back at the office

         the software is almost complete,

taking tedium out of

mundane manual tasks...

Hours will be saved for us all.
