Labour Laborious

Labour, meek; Labour, weak
Labour long

And on and on

In everything it speaks
Hard work

And on…

Swan song?

Serve less
And dazed most days –
Subject to haze

Oh, stupid!

Frozen; muted

And moot

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

By cowards, true

Initiating heart
Once bold
Hard won
And worn with pride

Complacent and
Unto contempt

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

Its soul
Now bought and sold
And scattered lies
