Where will you draw the line my friend?
Will you ban the Burka? Don’t you think you will fail?
Would you stepped up and stopped Jacki O
From wearing her mourning veil?
Will you ban the Hijab or the Niqab?
Or will common sense prevail?
Or will the veiled betrothed before the priest
Have her wedding breakfast in jail?
Are you frightened so much of difference
That you’d make our freedom so frail?
Would the Holy Mother been bare headed
While Jesus received the nail?
Will you make us vote for a woman’s choice
In a survey in the mail?
Will the Nun in her Christian habit
Bare her head t’ward the Holy Grail?
Will you make choice for women
Be something put to sale?
Or will you ensure freedom and rights
Grow strong and hearty and hale?
Will you ensure that all women
Have the measure of justice and scale?
And let us not not deny diversity
And let us follow freedom’s trail.
