Honest Policy

A ‘United Ireland’ always the dream

For many a one like me

But a million Ulster Protestants

Say hold on that cannot be

And many died contesting it

Many a brutal day

God forbid that we forget

And mayhem has its way


But a system rigged to suit one side

Is never bringing joy

And the call for justice interpreted

As a smart sectarian ploy

And so began the killing

The soldiers and the guns

And cruel death throughout the land

Took so many of Ulster’s sons


It’s unity we are looking for

Not uniformity

We are different

And on that we can agree

And a will to make a common life

Be neighbourly and friends

And grow together from that strife

And all our sorrows end
