Plastic Honey

Read this.  One of our marvellous year tens wrote it in creative writing club.


Plastic Honey


You promised us land of honey and milk

We come but it’s just plastic and filth

Praying to false idols and wearing stolen silk

Yet we refuse to leave.


Our home is being raped and ripped apart

Our memories killed and used as a spark

We are hated on both sides

Pray to the government

It’s your very own religion;

Playing their pawns to the queen

Pick your side

Because we can’t.
