Tuesday Poem - Ewan MacColl 'Moving On'.

'You better get born in some place else,
Move along, getalong, move, shift - Go!'

This is the ultimate song about social prejudice, racism and unwanted people - as applicable to refugees as it was to travellers - written by Ewan MacColl, sung here by the MacColl brothers, Chris Wood and beautiful descant by Karine Polwart.
