Yes I think it's over now, all our selfless work betrayed
The lying, thieving, cheating types who buckled, because they were afraid
And people lost their lives for less and people are divided.
They gave away the important things the ones in which we prided.
Those traitors came and sold us out, the whole corrupted game,
Only to fill their wallets, we tried our best all the same,
And we struggled and we soldiered on and swallowed much abuse.
Still hoping for better days, all a waste. What was the use?
All for nothing, because people didn't care. Blind principles degraded.
And blind they stayed, waving bright flags, with bitterness paraded
Showing how bigotted and stupid they were, to see nothing else at all.
Cheated of our birthright now we curry, beg and crawl.
No one does bitterness and begrudgery like us. And don't we do it well?
Of course we also do stupidity and ignorance with souls that we can sell
My enemy's enemy is my friend but have you any friends left?
We're going down together anyway because our adversaries were quite deft.
"So what matter now?" you say.The division bell is ringing,churches are still full.
There's no religion here just old habits dying hard, for minds that are too dull,
Bringing us all down together a very old, tragic story,
As it all falls to bits twixt misguided notions of idiotic glory,
In total disarray, we've lost, we've lost our very nation.
Are you happy now?Was there loads of compensation?
Nothing left for our children, only bitterness like poison darts
The battle is over but the ignorance lives on, in our hearts.
"Stupid I am and stupid I remain", never looking left or right
Marching straight ahead like good little soldiers into someone else's fight.
Hardly any point waking up now anyway, you may gripe and sneer
Expertly divided by deceit, treachery and machinations of fear
Easily led, on bullshit fed, and we believed them all
As we believe them still,even now as we stumble and fall.
I will not try tell you things you don't want to hear now,
I suppose it's kind of funny really some fools still worship the dow.
There would appear to be, for me, little more left to say,

Blog Name: James Linnane Bookchat Corner
Author Name/Pen Name: Lisa Sumner
Platform by: Blogger
About the Blog:
About the Author: James Linnane is a scion and resident of Ireland, who claims to be getting old and lazy after living an action-packed life.
Blog Purpose: James Linnane’s Bookchat Corner is basically a place for anything that’s on his mind, be it poetry or a local get-together.
Major Topics: Poetry, books, meetings, humorous quotes, and conspiracies.
Technical: The Simple template is exactly as stable as one might expect, and useful for those who simply want to put words on a page without worrying about the various multimodal aspects of the modern blogging experience. Bookchat Corner uses only the default gadgets and everything runs smoothly. The picture in the header is giant, and, while a very nice photo, it bumps the beginning of the content clear off the page when loading the site or changing content pages. Either shrinking or cropping it would be a wise decision. Personally, I’d crop it right up to just below the sailboat, since that big expanse of lake is not especially eye-catching.
Blog is stable in Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer.
Content: As a fairly new blog, there is only so much content to sift through. The content type follows no set type or schedule, but poetry by the author, and quotes from comedians are both common. Occasional posts about meeting, or events also pop up. The non-poetry content is of moderate quality, possibly because the author is still getting used to the platform, and its quirks. For example there’s one giant dump of content on secret societies that is huge, unformatted, and appears to have been copied directly from a newsfeed. As for the poetry, I thought it was fine, but of course the first time two people agree on the quality of poetry will be thirty seconds after a poet figures out how to clone him or herself–and sometime in the next minute one of them will change their mind. Linnane shows no hesitation in trying out different sorts of poetry, from serious to comedic, so it’s likely that fans of poetry will find something to their liking.
Major Subjects: Writing (poetry, general)
All blogs are tested in IE, Firefox, and Chrome. None are tested in Safari or Opera. If you would like your blog to be reviewed, please contact me.
