published in Green Left 2014
In every one of the 1000 editions
you stayed true to the Left’s traditions
filled with ideas and radical renditions
you provided the intellectual munitions
to confront haughty right,
defend the poor and return lost sight
saving forests and other eco-fights
confronting government’s leading lights.
To you Green Left I say well done
You’ve earned your place in the sun.
