BELT IT OUT AT BALCOMBE!
Sunday, September 1, 2013

2:00pm
Lower Stumble, Balcombe, West Sussex
Come and join in Balcombe once again for Belt it out @ Balcombe 2. This event promises to be at least double the size of the last one, and with our new Choral Director, Susie Ro, we are positively on fire.
Cuadrilla and other frackers are pushing their agenda forward all over Europe. We know their activities poison water systems and fill the air with methane.
This is a very scary time on Planet Earth. It is also KEY that we acknowledge this fact.
Come and join us. We need EVERY VOICE! Bring an open heart, your enthusiasm, and musical instruments that fill you with joy.
Organised and Directed by Balcombe's resident poet, Simon Welsh.

Fracking Anthem – And did they frack

Inspired by William Blake’s poem.
Thank you, Mr Blake.

And did they frack in ancient times?
Poisoning waters; once so clean?
And were their fil-thy rigs of doom
On England’s plea-sant-pastures seen?

And did the On-ly face of Truth
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And do the frackers know time is up
To use their dark sa-tanic drills.

Come join us here and sing your song:
Sing of the justice you desire.
Assist us NOW! These frackers are wrong.
We now remember: We’re the Choir.

We will not cease from camp-ing here,
Nor shall we rest till fracking’s banned.
Till we have kicked these frackers out
Of England’s green-and pleasant land.

5th August 2013 Simon Welsh Poetry

I've only just read your post, Simon. Some of us have to work all day to support our families; and do not have the time to compose poetry.
