The Thistle and The Rose

a poem by Charles Fisher, UK

Weary no more the thistle is
Its purple flower in its full bloom stand
Gather passion of a nation's hope
Is here and living in a new golden age
Where the rocks that shaped a nation dreams
Is wide awake on this historic day

The red red rose that's bloomed for
generations, has now turned grey
Grown old the rose has
Bitter and sadness the rose petals are
The working class of recent times,
spurned the rose that came tainted, by the
ghost towns of another era

A new generation have cast their vote
Wore, no more the flat cap and grey coat
The Scottish Thistle has took hold
Where the Labour rose once did
