Citizen Not Subject

I Citizen, can let no king be mine,

I will not swear an oath in your god’s name.

You do not reign by any right divine,

To my loyalty you have no right, no claim.

 I swear I’ll pay to these my true allegiance:

The teachers, paramedics, railway workers,

I’ll fight for their protection from malfeasance,

“For all, not for the few” must be our charter.

Our British Nurses have not bread enough,

Our claps have not sufficed to pay their bills.

Whilst royal snouts are snuffling in the trough,

Our Sick and Carers swallow bitter pills.     

   There’s something rotten in the state of Britain,

   Compassion’s now been flung upon the midden.

From the German Berliner Zeitung about the Coronation protests.

Demonstranten in London: „Das ist etwas, das wir in Moskau erwarten würden“.
