Annual anarchy, typical Twelfth news,

very cracked-record, proud sectarian views,

shouting out at sinners, gospel-warped ire,

petrol-soaked pallet towers, Protestant pyres.

 

Why should Queen Elizabeth care

for loyalty misplaced in flags and fanfare?

Not grace-saving blood – just judgement thunder

of marching bands pulling province asunder.

 

O True Blue Unionists! All others are traitors

  • you show spite not spirit – who are the haters,

shouted red-faced spleen and bully-boy bluster?

Embattled and embittered, Calvinistic cluster.

 

Unbiblical, sinful – that sectarian sash,

pagan hatred spat, stoked petrol bombs smash:

murder and mayhem, only God can forgive,

His wheat and weeds wait for sickle and sieve.
