A dull people,
without charm or ideas,
like the savage games
of making their own fortune.
Deferring to monitor and censor;
Not ashamed for this,
But given over to gambling,
the leverage speculating of money,
Some with a priest’s voice
in their cage of numbing mind
preach the uncivilised religion of
barbaric rules and customs.
One can ignore them
(the vast distances would help)
and suppose them at the bottom of Mount Sinai
hearing the Ten Commandments from their prophet Moses to guard their behaviour.
