Poppy

Hypocrite poppy red in his lapel
Now is now and then was then,
Standing stiff for fallen men.

Sombre tunes with marching bands
Centred village town memorials
Weeping widows for those who fell
Eleven strikes the sombre bell

He did know – he didn’t care
Defiant in his blazed lapel
Stone of heart it shrivelled stands
Dead of Iraq by his bloodied hands

The one who knew but didn’t care
A portrait bright, outrageous sham
Weapons massed in cold deception
Stephen Kelly’s life. What election?

He did know and didn’t care
Insulting soldiers everywhere
Sad eyed in public with vacant stare
The avowed most Christian:Tony Blair

On seeing Tony Blair’s only portrait
While in office as Prime Minister
