Nothing much

9th May 2010

They say mad Nero fiddled whilst Rome burned:
In all the years since then what have we learned?

Westminster is a gambler’s busted flush,
And faced with nothing, nature’s breathless hush,
And money changers, given a nation’s keys
Have stolen all from weak democracies.

Whilst shuffling smoke in some dark place this day
One B, two C’s, will with their fiddles play.
