We should all be a bit of Captain Tom

“I won’t wear a mask.

I’ll do what I f’in want to do.”


But he just kept walking

Round and round

Doing more than this government ever could do


“I’ll see who I want

When I want.”


But in the years when he should be

Just letting go

He gave it all to us


A hospital he will never see

A cancer patient walking out pain free

A child’s broken limb, now walking round and around


A country we should all be


Shining a searchlight against the mindless few

Telling us just to be kinder and giving

To you and you and me.

Captain Tom

BRAVO Captain Tom!

2 years on, we've learned nothing except sheep will still be sheep.
