    Salt of The Earth

    Ordinary people
    That’s who we are
    Our triumphs
    Our sacrifices
    And torments
    Go unsung
    For the most part
    Un-noticed by anyone

    Ordinary people
    Who’s lives may have suffered tragedy
    Quite separate
    From the world of celebrity
    Who’s weight loss and weight gain
    Who’s lives are sucked up
    So avidly

    That’s what we are
    Un-recognised heroines
    And heroes
    People that the world
    Never knows

    This celebrity culture
    Demeans us
    Turn our lives
    To a paultry plethora
    Of existence
    Devoid of the glitter and pomp
    Of celebrity red carpet
    TV show sold money

    Our faces un-immortalised
    In the applause
    Of the overpaid and wealthy
    Of yet another publicity stunts
    Our lives a mere daily
    Rigmarole of mediocrity
    As we dine on the scraps
    Of news and gossip
    Of the purile insignificance
    Of celebrity

    Ordinary people
    That’s who we are
    The un-discovered heroes
    And heroines
    Who’s backs and sweat
    Hold up the scaffolding
    Of the bright shinning
    Neon distraction
    World of celebrity

    Football players
    All raking the cream
    Which belongs to
    And Doctors
    Road sweepers
    Trash collectors
    Making their lives ends meet
    And staying afloat
    Facing each day
    Heroines and heroes
    Of the common all
    And for the common good

    Though bemused and belittled
    And lied to
    Still we emerge
    As the salt of the Earth
    Just ordinary
