A Singsong!

I'm sitting in First Out in the West End with the fabulous rozk. She has just had a flash of inspiration and penned this song. It's sung to the tune of "My Old Man's a Dustman":

Stonewall was a riot
Drag queens and butch dykes
Not the sort of demo
That Ben Summerskill Likes

Stonewall, they threw dustbins
Hurled bricks at the law
Summerskill throws parties
And don't hurl bricks no-more

Stonewall rioters went to jail
Fighting for their rights
Summerskill serves cocktails
And goes to gala nights

That was real Stonewall
Now it's just a name
Summerskill leaves trans folk out
And never feels the shame

We are the trans nation
Won't take crap no more
Summerskill can hear us
Shout outside his door!

I'm in awe of her ability to ad-lib. I think I'll print out a coupe of hundred lyrics sheets and distribute them at the demo tomorrow!
