Leave The Travellers Be

You have all heard all about it,
you have all watched it on TV.
And everyone knows that they
should just leave the Travellers be.
They are doing no one any harm
by wanting a different way of life.
But it shakes the foundations of the reality
you share with your upper class wife.
They are helping the housing problem
by living life in their own way.
But the government won’t listen to reason
it won’t let people have their say.
This is supposed to be a free country?
it is their choice to live on a bus.
Like to live in a town or a city
is a decision which is only down to us?
They should make legal campsites
and just leave the Travellers be.
Instead of closing society’s gates.
we should let them all go free.
