Man in the Border Post

With a nod to The Jam’s ‘Man in the Corner Shop’ …

Turns the closed sign does the man in the border post
Rejects his last and says goodbye to her
He knows it is a hard life
But he has to follow orders really

Walks back to camp does the last applicant
She’s not angry with the man in the border post
She is sick of struggling so hard
She says it must be nice to have a home to go to

Buy cigars do the bosses in the government
They are laughing at the man in the border post
They don’t care about the stranded and homeless folk
They say it’s fucking great to run the country

Go to hell can the people in the border camp
Cos in the real world not everyone is equal
