Remissio

Virtue signal me

with your Colgate smile

microscopic minds

seem to be in style

 

Scrutinise my every word

written or spoken how absurd!

I don’t care or share

your BBC bias…

 

For I know deep down

all men are liars

skeletons hang in all of our closets

thoughts, deeds – shameful acts

that is the truth

those are the facts…

 

Hiding under your cloak of hypocricy

as you mount your attack

diversity your mantra

faux concern expressed

to those of minority faith, colour, culture

just pawns in your game

building your deluded Utopia…

 

See me as an embarrassment

maybe I am – offending your conscience

ruining your plans

despisingly you stare straight in my face

not knowing my children – all whom mixed race

 

But that wouldn’t compute

could never be right

I must be an Islamohobic racist

cos I’m working class white!

 

I’m not concerned about Brexit

leave or remain

for you it will change

for me stay the same

 

Just trying to be a man

dealing daily with his pain

living a quiet life

never making the news

with an open mind n’ independent views

 

Sure I’ve said things in anger

in moments of rage

things I regret – but wisdom comes with age

 

Do my best to live this side of the law

but the odds are stacked – I’m nobody’s fool

still try to show kindness to everyone I meet

I’m just that old guy who lives down your street

It’s not that I’m slow – just everything so fast

living by old school values I learned in the past

 

Yet I know a world without forgiveness

a world without grace

will be ruled by men

who feel no guilt or shame

 

So my SJW woke friend

take a deep look within

throw that first stone

if yourself without sin….
