 ramblings and things

Remembrance 2021

Still no land fit for heroes
Just crocodile tears and thanks
As the evictions continue with
Dependence on food banks
As the rich get even richer
And the wealth gulf grows
Facts that are ignored though
Facts everybody knows.
They'll stand at the Memorials,
It's the thing to be seen to do
And they know just when
To stand and perform on cue,
Continue their wealth making,
Deal in commodities and arms
All the time watching for
Any cause to take alarm,
When they'll have a little war
In defence of their divine right
And cull the growing peasantry
By sending them off to fight.
God will still be in his Heaven
As those in power really know
Inciting growth of patriotism
 Helps maintain the Status Quo.
