National Pride?

Form: Free Verse

Empty promises
hidden in bare-faced lies
our government turning another blind eye
resentment and unrest
building on our streets
more tax cuts for the wealthy
more foodbanks for us
another old soldier
dying in a shop door
and a suit and tied geezer
kicking his head
schools filled with hungry children
unfed waifs of sanctions
that are best for the country
this is Tory Britain
defiled by fascist hate
hate against gender
hate against race
hate against religion
hate against LGBT
hate against disability
the national pride of bigotry
that is the shame of our nation
