'Ode to the Moss'

The mill has been here for hundreds of years,
Where men have sweated blood and tears,
Making plasterboard liner by the ton,
Board at its best, second to none.

For months we've been making stock in abundance,
Now we're facing mass redundance,
You're all hoping, we have made enough,
Because Regis mill can't make the stuff.

That's not an example of forward planning,
You should have thought, before demanning,
Before you decided to shut down the "Moss",
That rash decision could be your loss,

The workforce here doesn't think it just,
As another business bites the dust,
At the end of the day it's down to money,
But the guys up here don't think it's funny.

So it's bye from "C" shift, were first to go,
We are off on holiday so cheerio,
Will the last person to leave the site,
Feed the cat and put out the light.
