‘Delay No More’, Anon.

Delay No More 

Delay no more
Discussion of our handover.
Our future, discussed over
Foreign blood. ‘How’s that
Pekking Duck’, smiles Deng,
‘A little raw’, Thatcher notes. 

Delay no more
Discussion of bold men,
In cravats and ties.
Panda express,
‘one Donald deal, with a side of Leung.’
System Error. 

Delay no more
Discussion of broken umbrellas,
Abducted books, and anger infused tears.
Take our words, our land,
Cut out my tongue,
And make it all yours. 

Delay no more
Discussion of our children,
And the history and literature
They’ll bed.
‘Wong be nimble,’; ‘Chan be quick,’
They both jump over a mountain cliff.  

Delay no more
Discussion of English bricks,
And Chinese bridges,
Our orphan blood,
And nameless race.
Oh the ungrateful children that we are!
