  1. Hey John,

    It’s wonderful to have you return for another poem from the Gallbloggers table of digestible ditties Thank you for your re-blog and on-going support. Both are most welcome.

    This poem has made an appearance before on WP having been shared previously as a comment in response to a post regarding Social Security provision in the UK. The content of the poem reflects on the quality of ‘fairness’ and who exactly determines what is fair for the fair few when the fair few are being treated unfairly much to the delight of unfair Lady Money and those who idolise the godless god stealing virtue from God’s roses on Earth: Lady Compassion, Lady Generosity, Lady Kindness, and fair Lady Fairness: all are lost to the rapacious godless god of money.

    When will politicians come to realise that they are fleeting and ephemeral, unimportant and easily replaced: that human values are eternal, far more important to the spiritual long-term vision of human-kind than short-term policies that largely dismiss opportunity for social reforms and the positive progression of society in favour of capitalist self-interest. Governments go round and round in circles disappearing inside the blackness of their own failed miserable policies. New ideas are needed. New leaders are needed. It is time for substantial non-violent social change across the world. Greed has had its day.

    In the poem it is Merlin who addresses the House Sitters Who else is there better able to stand and challenge the White Dragon of Whitehall than the Red Dragon of the Celts? Rumour has it he won a battle against the crown once before albeit a long time ago, but he still won, and that is all that matters. Gallybloggers believes he is returned again to the people at a time when the spirit embodied in King Arthur is much needed throughout our once fair land once more.

    Thank you John, as always our gratitude for the kind re-blog. Hoping all is well and Saturday off to a flier

    1. As always, Dewin, I’m pleased to feature your poems on my humble site. Consider Words To Captivate as a second home, or a home away from home. I appreciate the background and commentary!
