A Poem for the Coronation

A Poem for the Coronation

Are we raising a glass to the privileged

affirming distinction of class

endorsing division determined by wealth

looking forward by embracing our past

to the display we delight in

the pageantry, pomp

on show in the name of the king

crowning our self-reassurance

and an order that always has been.

Or are we raising a glass for togetherness

a reason for neighbours to meet

where pearly parading Eastenders

star in another soap’s street

to crowning a king

who we can be proud of

our beacon on the world stage

shining a light for our country

in a turbulent shadowy age.
