No April Fool’s (RIP Ian Tomlinson x)

You don’t have to know a man
to feel his last sunrise
as you watch them lay him naked
but for cover ups and lies
If he was selling his own headline
on the street tonight
he’d shout about a man who died
in someone else’s fight
Read how those above the law
pushed a man down to the floor
just before he died alone
for trying to get home.

 

This ain’t no April Fool’s
Just another example of how the rules
only apply to us common folk
the law ain’t an arse, it’s a fucking joke

You don’t have to judge a man
by how and what went wrong
Not everybody
can make themselves belong
The powers that be will kill someone
when they’re already dead
to justify the lack of hearing
what the experts said
about those above the law
who pushed a man down to the floor
just before he died alone
for trying to get home

This ain’t no April Fool’s
Just another example of how the rules
only apply to us common folk
the law ain’t an arse, it’s a fucking joke

You don’t have to know a man
to know what’s wrong from right
The fact that copper got let off
is a flag down for the fight
But this ain’t just about one man
It’s about our liberty
and if their laws don’t stretch to them
then they don’t stretch to me
So fuck those above the law
who pushed a man down to the floor
just before he died alone
for trying to get home

This ain’t no April Fool’s
Just another example of how the rules
only apply to us common folk
the law ain’t an arse..it’s a fucking joke

RIP Ian Tomlinson xxxx
