Excerpt from George Meek: Bath Chair-Man
Song of the chair-men
We do not live, we only starve and linger;
We do not hope, we only drift along;
We have no faith, the years have made us faith-less;
Come! listen to the chair-men's feeble song.
We have no grip on life all things pervading,
We have no cheer but what to-day may bring;
There is no lore for those who walk in darkness,
O! listen while the trailing chair-men sing.
God send us help, or else there is no saviour;
God send us hope, or else we die in pain;
God send us light, or else we blindly falter;
God send us quickly back to sleep again.
Blindly we strive, the vultures gather round us,
Weakly we seek to arm ourselves and stand;
We may not fly; there is no welcome waiting
For such as us in all this teeming land.
We would be men, and do men's work untiring;
We would be free, and never know a care;
We would be strong, and give for what life giveth.
But Hope lies wounded, dying everywhere.
We would achieve, would quarry stones or build them
We've but our manhood left to us to save
Oh! Land of England! Is there none to help us
Is life just this - and presently the grave George Meek.
