#poem #poetry #amwriting england


so let us start with an invocation of the hills
and green to stand stark contrast to yon mills
and towns or the springtime pull of daffodils

for no matter where one chooses to begin
some disagreeable type will toss their tuppence in
for england is a not a place - but a sin

pull the bunting down - break the window pane
stamp on the flowers and stone the train
england must be cursed - for sanctimonious gain
