The Man Who Spoke

*Recent visit (and now revisit) of Ed Miliband, Labour Party leader to Scotland speaking of ‘social justice’


And lied to himself and us

Saying ‘social justice’ with phonemic litany

Without a foundation of purpose or history.


An intellect misappropriated for power

Standing with those who sell the undeserving poor.


A racist Party debated with the Deputy Prime Minister

As this nation debated its essence.


Not anger, not regret but surprise at the spectacle-

Flag waving, jubilees do not disguise decay.


Whatever the poll result

A new start has been made.


As The Bruce never said,

‘We won’t gie in’.
