The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Slavish Submission
They lived in a ghetto housing project in the sky,
A huge square block welfare building a mile high,
Where single mothers and half brothers were the norm,
Where several savage gangs were known to swarm.
Goody-two-shoes analysed this dilemma all the way,
Wrote reports with statistics that faded into grey,
Of political correctness gone completely mad,
Couldn’t point out that multiculturalism was bad.
Forbidden to mention this menace, if or when,
The Human Rights Tribunal might call you in,
Or when arrested with guns their names not published,
This is what holier-than-thou youth laws accomplished.
While we the people tolerated totalitarianism,
In slavish submission to equalitarianism,
In this status quo system where nothing can change,
Subserviently lie low and stay out of gun range.
