Park owner says this sign cost him £10,000 and sent a letter asking home owners to pay £1000 towards the cost.

A Call to Arms

Hello stand up
Bring your friends
Here we are now
Entertain us
I feel stupid
And contagious
But it’s up to you to stop this
For I am too old
It’s up to you to step up
Stop this ancient stupidity
Hold them to account
Line up not in ranks
But holding hands
Make them see
Make them hear
Make them
Make them
My hippy dream dissolved
My music tried
Give peace a chance
Died in New York
It’s up to you to step up
Stop this ancient stupidity
Stupidity can be a rush to the head
And like a virus it will spread
Stand up
Stand up

On listening to Smells like teen spirit
Cobain described the song as a call to arms

P B Shelly
Stand ye calm and resolute,
Like a forest close and mute,
With folded arms and looks which are
Weapons of unvanquished war.
And if then the tyrants dare,
Let them ride among you there;
Slash, and stab, and maim and hew;
What they like, that let them do.
With folded arms and steady eyes,
And little fear, and less surprise,
Look upon them as they slay,
Till their rage has died away:
Then they will return with shame,
To the place from which they came,
And the blood thus shed will speak
In hot blushes on their cheek
