That Was the MUSE That Was

Waste

You didn’t give us what we want
so we’ve wheeled out a fascist
to outline our discontent.

We’re drinking lager in the street,
giving the finger to parliament.
We sons of England, replete

with impotent fury, beetroot faced,
saluting a despot. Red crosses
aloft, grandad's lessons gone to waste.
