And did those fools in modern time – with apologies to William Blake

And did those fools in modern time
Build walls ’round Britain’s open ground?
And was the unholy devil’s hand
on Britain’s diverse landscapes found?
And did the xenophobic mood
extend its clout upon our lands?
And was our doomstruck state created here
with zest by those satanic hands?

Bring me the strength to take a stance!
Bring me the will to oppose the death!
Bring me resolve to help advance
The cause of Europe and her breath!
I will not cease to back the cause,
nor shall I waver in my quest,
Till we rebuild our bridges firm
between our isles and Europe’s nest.
