Title: West

Western ethos
liberal style
philosphers
humanists
pause a while
and THINK

Your West or mine?

Enlightenment
Human rights
Equality
Fight the Good fights
Western culture
contradiction
Glance away
from our addiction

Your West or mine?

Nationalism
Marxism
Fundamentalization
Draw a breath
and brand our Nation
West
You know best

Your West or mine?

Westernization
Glut and greed
Fanatics
Non-believers
Bible-Bashers
ill-conceivers

Your West or mine?

Western culture
have your say
Mainstream movements
rule the day

Creativity
and self expression
We CAN breathe (just)
that’s our lesson

Your West or mine?

Opinionated
society makers
come and join us
but DON’T
aggravate us

Your West or mine?

Western culture
constantly changing
Join us now
We’re deranging
The World

Bit by bit
This is IT

Flash our billboards
Binge our food
let our muzac
set your mood
Drown your sorrows
Fly our flag
Botox up
and dress in drag

You made it

Crisis looming
doom and gloom
Do a U y
quit the room
Capitalists
lose OUR money
Some are sobbing
Some find it funny

Your West or mine?

Some troll gutters
Others utter
their pretence
It makes sense
to THEM

Start again

Liberal thinkers
Human kind
want our say
know our mind
do our best
get it wrong
join me now
in a song

But don’t PREACH

here

Go West!
