Default The Socialist

one more vol au vent
imported gin fuelled witticism
gut is the somerset hills
designer is unpronounceable
shoes, forget about it
that’s your annual budget

And it’s him.
whose routes are the same
streets designed in Edwardian
Victorian Britain precisely to
avoid even clapping eyes on you

whose educated mind steadily
produces disquiet and outrage
on your behalf, so incensed
by his own existence

we heard them say — these strange
self hating creatures —
that we had nothing to lose
but our chains

and for that

if ever we were
invited to their table
in the matrix there
would be a glitch
it is not the love of us
which licensed this betrayal
but rather a hatred
of the rich

I don't want any gay people hanging around me while I'm trying to kill kids.
