King, Queen and Country

Saudi and Bahrain are strong,

Our military bases are safe,

Our bombs and munitions wait,

Our advisors advise them, and us


How best to kill,

Which lawyers to consult,

Which phrases to repeat


AlongsideĀ our allies,

We stand firm,

Repeat, repeat,

Our Queen, Their King


Millions more, Billions more

Blood-soaked ruins

Decimated houses

No longer any refuge


No longer homes,

Collapsed countries,

Crushed, ruined

No longer viable



Charles, you speak to flowers,

Can you speak to them now,

For all is dead and dying
