Mayday in England today is 'MAYDAY'
a plea to ignore Merrie England and
the rights of all workers from HMQ
to the like of yours truly, as no day
is allowed for merry making as anti-
trade unionists unite with Neo-Cons,
twice killjoys contemptuous of Albion
of old, despising our rights and the
responsibilities of today, disliking days
of rest, of recreation, as it loses money
for them who mistakenly think the nation.
The fault is Christianity with their blessed
holy days that worshipped not myriad
masters but a foreigner who captured
our hearts and minds, one Jesus Christ
so divine, whose message still is, will not
go away despite those who gainsay his
message of hope in these so difficult
times in this our Merrie England on this
our Mayday in a Spring of showers, sunshine and flowers.
