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’.
