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 .

A Child’s Fairy Tale

All animals are equal

but some animals are

more equal than others ;

Fathers,Sisters,Mothers,Brothers

all join in the family fun

getting ready for slaughter in the midday sun ;

Piggy piggy trough trough

snout snout snout ,

lives in the mire

no-one gets out ;

Eat eat eat belch belch belch

snuffle snuffle snuffle ,

silly little piggies never found the truffle ;

The Sun sets and all hope smothers ,

for Fathers,Sisters,Mothers,Brothers,

who without knowing lived for the profit of others.
