It's not a Turkish Delight!

Don’t drink
Don’t smoke
Don’t show public affection
It’s no joke

Put down tolerance
With a baton charge

Turn protesters
Into tears
With gas

Don’t drink
Don’t smoke
Don’t show public affection
It’s no joke

But you won’t last
As the stinging eyes will clear

Because sooner or later
Your intolerant regime will go
Because you can’t tell people what to do


Don’t drink
Don’t smoke
Don’t show public affection
It’s no joke

And each and every one
standing up in a fearful street
your country will one day thank you ………..for your pride

Turkey protest: anti-government clashes spread

David was born in Liverpool in 1964. He left school with nothing, rummaged around various dead end jobs, then back to college and uni. In his 20's he first discovered poetry, starting writing and performing and has done so ever since. I has lived on the Wirral for the past 8 years.
