“This taking the knee thing”
That’s what Fiona said
On Question Time tonight.
Just sums up where we’re at.
Such blatent flipancy,
From this roadshow antique
Who believes it’s her right,
As a top presenter,
To set political
And social agendas.
Her denigration and
Naked belittling
Of anything vaguely
Left wing and progressive
Continues on unchecked,
Sadly, week after week.
Black Lives Matter, campaign
In English Football game,
Up for public debate,
“This taking the knee thing.”
It’s not political,
Is It?Well yes, it is,
Just not on the radar
Of Labour or Tories.
