Treasure Island

Soldier Lee Rigby


Lee Rigby was killed
for being identified as a Defender
of his Country.
His Killer will receive
the full protection
of that Country
and its lawyers.
The Killer's religion will continue to receive
the full protection
of an endangered species.

The Country's Prime Minister
will continue the dismemberment
of his Country's Church and Constitution,
begun by his predecessors.

The Rich will continue to get richer.
The Poor will continue to get poorer.

Such is the country
that Lee
died
to serve.

Verily I say unto you,
they have their reward.

(All of them...)

Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
