all that is Left

blue blood
red heart
standing apart
from your peers
persistent
commoner
for the
common good
on picket lines
on marches
in support
of the oppressed
anti-war
anti-Thatcher
may your soul rest
in the peace
that you sought
never
to be forgotten
forever
to be remembered
and grieved
for there were few
as honourable
and noble
as you
Brother
as you

Clever title and warm, uncompromising piece for a wholly uncompromising man. RIP.
