APPARENTLY

Fri 6th Jul 2018






nobody speaks

about the Empire anymore (the greatest the world has ever seen)

as if


amnesia

was sprayed like deodoriser

and we forgot


that much of the globe

was red

and the sun never set


upon Artic waste

arid plains

without God Save the Queen


now

only dusty history books (and not all)

mention the facts


genocide in Africa

Irish famines

the partition of India


the goods trains did run on time

apparently

that mattered more than anything
