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
