Taking a wee bit of history and poking at London's Olympic migration.

Royalty candy floss
A minority rule, basis
Argument filled with flaws
Calling its people racist

Racist from the begining
Pict, a name of painted people
Boudica, Londinium failed at taming
Her land renamed Scotland, so feeble
A racist meaning, a land of painted people

London so grand, racist it surely not
Pushed out London's own Vikings
The Irish were left with potato rot
All starting with kings and queens

Olympic dreams smothered community
Community integration, London's fallacy
Londoner's so tired of being displaced
Their anger was never about race

Generations taking the piss
Angered words to all who'll listen
With housing sparse on the list
A million more will be a comin'

London is no longer London
Out spoken words, now racist
Out numbered a hundred to one
It's people, unseen, do they exist?
