Sacrificial Offerings

We offered our eyes to the blind ,

but they didn’t want to see ;

We wanted to give our ears to the deaf ,

yet they had no desire to listen ;

We offered the use of our arms and legs to the limbless ,

but they didn’t want to go anywhere or do anything ;

We would have given the illiterate our words ,

We would have offered the dumb our voice ,

We would have given the aborted our lives ,

We’d even give The monochrome our colours ;

but there is no-one ,no-one ,no-one

to give anything to.

Farewell,England

I waited years for their answer
which they gave me as I was about to leave ,
they said it wasn’t what I knew
but what I’d chosen to believe ;

I told them their revelation was less than startling
and didn’t come as any big surprise ,
their reasons left much to be desired
as they thumbed thro’ a pack of worn out lies ;

They handed me the charge sheet
and told me I had to serve my time ,
they didn’t offer proof or evidence of wrong-doing
but insisted I was guilty of a crime ;

So I said farewell to my liberty
giving vent to Saxon oaths ,
as the new Emperors crowned themselves
they were still without any clothes .

Economic Crisis

STAND..Stand..stand

and STARE..Stare..stare ,

After all there’ll always be

somebody else to care ;

STOP..Stop..stop

and GO..Go..go ,

what you’ve missed out on in life

you will never know ;

HELLO..Hello..hello

G’BYE..G’bye..g’bye ,

All your tears have been wasted

but they still expect you to cry ;

BURN..Burn..burn

and SLASH..Slash..slash ,

They sold your birthright

for just a hand full of cash ;

STARE..Stare..stare

and STAND..Stand..stand ,

now everyone knows the names

of those who betrayed our Land.
