It’s no good retreating
Into your shell like
Shutting your small door
Or portillo, behind you
On the basis of some peccadillo
And sitting sipping the amontillado
Of which you are an afficionado
You can’t just shut yourself away in there,
You’ve get to out here.
Things are happening everywhere
Bif baf bof
It’s all going off
And it’ll come back down
Around all our ears, my dears.
Set get out of the cave Dave.
Get down off the hill Jill.
Get out of your shack Jack.
And back in the swim Jim.
You can no longer be as uninvolved
As a tunnelling mole.
So get out of your hole
Because worm eating is not the answer
Collective worm farming
Under democratic workers’ control
After the overthrow of world capitalism
