WORDS OF HATE,

Poem by: Philip Roberts

Summary

I hate jingoism glorified as patriotism. I am opposed to national flags, national anthems, medals and honours – since mainly dishonourable people receive them.

“I am better than you, my friend”
That’s what I’m taught to say,
For no one is as good as us
As handsome, strong, or brave.

It’s a marching song, a song of hate
Which leaves us proudly standing,
“Give your life to us, you wretch!”
That’s what we’re now demanding.

No one is on Earth’s good as us
No one’s as proud or certain,
These words of hate strengthen us
In ways we can’t explain.

“March!  March!  March!” is our evil song
“March!  March!  March!” is our loathsome theme,
Marching for the British Commonwealth
Marching for your country and queen!

We put other nations in their place
Proving to them we are the best,
Moslem, Hindu, or Hebrew too
‘Cause, “East is East and West is West!”

We love to sing our song of hate
At any parade, or sporting event,
To show the world we love ourselves
But for others we have only contempt!

THE END
