All But the Muslims

Do not fret, my flesh and blood,

At this loathesome move.

Whoever makes you a stranger

Makes me a stranger too.

 

When the excluder was abetting

The imperial brigand.

You were fighting with pen and sword

To free our beloved land.

 

The ashes of the excluder

Will run away to the sea.

Your loyal dust will forever

With home-ground mingled be.

 

Those that are patriots spurn

This new law mis-shapen,

And are already out to see

Such exclusion will never happen.

 

This parliament having done

The unconscionable deed,

It is for the judges up on high

To render dead this seed.

 

Without you, my seamless family,

This home is a soulless hollow.

No country folk who are not mad

Will this villainy swallow.
