DURING THE MINERS STRIKE: 1984-1985! (A Snapshot Work)During The Miners Strike
I with others were picketing
Were just well walking about
Baiting the cops
We went forwould - cops came on
Towards us - We'd retreat!
During a brake - in all of that
I got to talking to a young copper
He were not happy - not happy at all!
'' I did not become a copper - to stop
What you are doing - on strike to keep your jobs! ''
I said to him: '' Would you defy - orders to arrest me? ''
'' when you know I broken no law? ''
He went quiet - then he said: '' No! ''
I respected his honesty - we shook hands - went about our day!
In my mind I remembered - German solders saying - in books:
'' I was only obeying orders! '' - Makes you think dont it!
