If you had it all today?

If you had it all today?
Would you give it all away?
Would you then just simply say
It’s better that they have it.

If the freedom to choose was yours
Would you take a small detour
and give it up, to then endure
what someone else chose for you

If you had a Burnsian society
Where no man would bend the knee
To privilege pomp and ceremony
Would you rather a serf and vassal be?

If you had a country without war
no atomic plants which you abhor
and ask what nuclear bombs were for?
would you happily then take them?

If your education was free for all
If your national health was good to call
If Social justice was common place
Would you rather they all fell in disgrace?

If In this world we took our stand
for every woman, child and man
If as our own nation we could be proud
Would you say that this is not allowed?

If your economy was just right
If no deprived poverty to fight
If your wealth and taxes you called yours
Would giving them up then so allure?

If to our children we could give hope
A better country where they could cope
The chance to live with their wealth blessed
Would you give a legacy of poverty instead?

Or would you much rather be
beholden to a neighbour who disagrees
who holds your purse strings as their right
sacrifice your Laws and give up your Rights!

Better still and Better yet
Better together is their gamblers bet
Better for them, there are some who’d say
If you were so foolish,as to give it all away.

You could have that all today!
But would you
quite happily
without pause, question
or delay
Really, give it all away?

Rod Macfarlane

If No, the Answer is YES
If yes, the answer is NO
The choice is yours…Choose wisely!

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod
