Standards (Saudi Arabia)


we don't criticise Saudi Arabia
where they shoot protestors dead;
no, we send the Royal Windsors
and sell them weapons instead,

they execute more per capita
killed before their firing squad
in the cause of Sharia Law
and the name of a merciful god

but we don't criticise Saudi Arabia
though their customs make us wince
we inflict a subtle punishment on them
we send our Heir, the Royal Prince

and the people in the city
especially the banks
count off the profits from
planes, and guns and tanks


Inspired by a report in today's newspaper 14/03/13
