Canto LXXX

My wife tells me to stop wasting my day
debating racist posters on Yahoo.
She has a point, I doubt that they will change

their Little England, Stormfront sanctioned views,
instead I should just picture them glaring
through net curtains into suburban mews

to double check they will not soon be sharing
their little village with some foreign types,
before going to back online to make daring

assaults on PC liberals that hype
the multi culture from our city flats.
Perhaps we should take this as cause for hope,

the views that once were issued by fiat,
by hereditary Lords and party leaders,
are only voiced by faceless, trolling prats

and higher ranking officials at FIFA.

    Your wife is right, religion and racial prejudice can generate hours of pointless debate. I think both of these have the same route cause… insecurity.
    Thus, in London, where most people have massive self belief, there is less racism and less religion.
    Poetry and song lyrics are great for bringing conciseness to convoluted issues.
