Labour Laborious

Labour, meek; Labour, weak
Labour long

And on and on

In everything it speaks
Hard work

And on…

Swan song?

Acquiesce
Serve less
And dazed most days –
Subject to haze

Oh, stupid!
Stupid

STUPID
Frozen; muted

And moot

Labour, old; Labour, new
Principle polluted
Advocate’s imperative
Speeds into blue
Caveat convenience
Ensues

Embraced
By cowards, true

Initiating heart
Once bold
Hard won
And worn with pride

Complacent and
Unkempt
Unto contempt

Labour empty; Labour, rent
Red removed
Left dies
Shifts into cold
Neglect
Reflects intent

Its soul
Now bought and sold
And scattered lies
Ill-spent
