... The British Plague...

by Peter Hunter

the British plague


like some plague of old

a joyless oppression has descended over Britain

no longer is it apparently acceptable to strive


to work hard and imaginatively


and improve and prosper

but to reward the work shy, the lazy and untalented

often giving them more than earned by the diligent

encouraging the idle drones that infect us


really we do not deserve to survive
