Green Unpleasant Land
Sara L. Russell (aka pinkyandrexa)
My soul weeps for this green unpleasant land,
once famed for the likes of Shakespeare and Shelley;
now flying the flag for pillage & Primark...
This England; a love foregone;
a people dissonant and disillusioned;
moderate voices drowned in the primate roars of the mob;
Hypocrites, miscreants and fools have ripped the heart
out of the city;
now hellfire and doom are the tattered legacy
of all the heartland.
This England, where all justice dies,
while love and beauty cries.
A lion bereft of pride.
