But

k

I’d love to help you distribute fliers at the demo on Saturday;

but – 

I’ve got to do the tiling

 k

I wish I could do what you do;

but

it’s just my arthritis, always seems to get in the way

 k

 k

No honestly, it would be great to refuse to pay my council tax

but

it’s just that I live with my mum, and it’s not worth the hassle

 k

 k

I would come along with you to do some street Truthing; 

but

it’s just that I’ve got to take the kids swimming

 k

I tell you, if I didn’t have this council job, you know I’d be doing all your activism;

but

it’s just not worth losing me job

 k

I would do what you do;

but

being a parent, it makes things tricky

 k

 k

I think it’s great what your doing. I would do the same;

but

it’s just my age. I just don’t have the energy these days

 k

I will do my bit;

but

I’ll have to put it off for the time being, because of this n that

 k

 k

Ohh I tell yer, if I weren’t living at home, I’d be resisting this tyranny;

but

it’s so awkward, what with my dad’s views

 k

I would help out;

but

I’m just so flat out at the moment with my business

 k

I’d love to do my bit;

but

it’s just my partner, she really doesn’t like me getting involved in that type of stuff

 k

 k

Funny how there always seems to be that but which somehow always gets in the way.

 

It’s a shame that the planet’s now destroyed, but there always seemed to be that excuse
