... 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
