Mayday
A Northeastener who may fight and die amongst the bravest soldiers, sailors and flyers, to save the honour, liberty and dignity of this island
May raise the common enemy of dictatorship, cruelty and poverty to the ground, to save and liberate the countries of strangers
Shall Build Bridges
A Northeastener who may be king of his castle, so long as he builds it in air
May go to the devil with his dreams, hopes and prayer
May not mine his God given land
May not build the world’s greatest ships
May not fish the North’s own sea
May not put unbegrudged bread on his children’s table
May not save himself from sorrow that’s his unbuilt tomorrow
SHALL BUILD ANGELS
 
A Northeasterner who may not have a library where his history may be read
 
Shall leave only words on cenotaphs and epitaphs when his race is pronounced dead
