Let not this be the last battle – A poem by Mark Higginson
A poem for St. George’s Day.
On St. George’s Day who will celebrate England,
Who will strive to promote this great fair land?
Will we dance and sing in loud voices and charge in competition,
Will we fly the flag so nobly, clasped hard in our hands?
Not all English people will celebrate this joyous occasion,
Many will be glad to see them not perform such a task.
Many who are English will not care to do so,
For that great malady that is apathy holds many in it’s grasp.
The fight is on for the hearts and minds of our great people,
To unite them against the enemy within.
Of all the battles to save England, this must be the one to succeed,
For this battle cannot be lost, if England is to win.
Let not this be the last battle, while truth, justice, and freedom,
Are rested from England’s children.
Only in the cold light of victory and restoration,
Can England be at peace and free.
