King Arthur of Cameldung's Vision

satirical poem.

wizard Porky the Pink

wizard Porky the Pink


imagine a land
of chivalrous knights
of damsels with nothing to fear

a land blessed with courage
and hard working folk
where knowledge and art are revered

- -

imagine a king
so noble of mind
that the poorest are sure to be fed

the sovereign speaks
and the homeless and weak
feel sure he will find them a bed

Porky the Pink
and Mandy the Magus
know all the most pertinent law

we'll tax what we may
and have plenty to pay
to the neediest homeless and poor

- -

we have lots to pay
to do all that we claimed
to solve housing and hunger and fears

for the sick and depressed
the disabled and stressed
and old folks who've worked fifty years

- -

for the deaf and the blind
(though some say they don't mind
and still try to fend for themselves)

for the idle and dross
who don't give a toss
and take gallons of beer from the shelves

- -

sometimes I can't sleep
there's no people – just sheep
in one gigantic circle of bleating

from the shops to the car
to the TV and bar
they're watching and buying and eating

- -

with phones in their ears
to blot out their fears
with the merciful refuge of noise

own more and be less
have sex – don't caress
tune in – learn to bullshit with poise

- -

they all have a vote
so we have to take note
and fund 15 stone beach-bums with dole

so shut up and vote
this is no time to hope
we're paying the pissheads to breed

Mandy the Magus wizard
