2015 02 – Plastered of Paris (poem)

                        SIGNED:PLASTERED OF PARIS

 

They bomb you and call it

peacekeeping,

they jeer and sneer at your

faith and call it

satire,

now the reaping and the moralising

liar.

They demonstrate for free speech,

the free speech that can’t be

yours,

be moderate they beseech while

backing those on bombing raid

tours.

 

By all means shoot and

kill

but not on French soil.

For this we opened the armoury and

the till!

 

So, as a secular nation you put other

seculars on the boil?

 

Excuse us if we appear

brazen

to you dissidents,

do our views

emblazon

the attitude of our

citizens?

No, we give them what they want

to hear.

Could we have enhanced Libya

if they weren’t our

peers.

Wilson John Haire
