Drifting flotsam

Ostracised by

Foolish greed and the lies it buys

Tried the patience of neighbouring nations

The blind followed the blind ambition

Half were mis-sold their voice

Half were shouted down

We were all sold out

(Mayday, mayday)

Dumped like jetsam

Redundant ballast

Gullible shills filled with small minded malice

Purpose served, served up as oblations

To media moguls and ghost corporations

Half found Stockholm syndrome

Half found out too late

We were all taken

Mayday, Mayday

We’re lost at sea

Isolated voluntarily

We’ll prove our independence

By dying alone

L. Switzer
