Burning hay and clouds of smoke
A sight not often seen in town
The Farmer is an angry bloke
When his tractor army rumbles down -
And blocks the traffic good and proper
No longer fobbed off by fine words
His protest - a sure-fire show-stopper
Prevarication – for the birds!
Schuman metro: locked and bolted;
Water cannon to the fore!
Crowds of Eurocrats revolted
The Farmers' lobby goes to war!
Behind plate glass discussions rage
As Ministers debate their claims
There's no justice at this stage
An atmosphere of terror reigns!
