Remembering the victims of British imperialism over all space and all time

Poppies perpetuate propagandist claims

On freedom, suffering and political frame

Territorialising time.

Sweet brother mine.

For Britain's bloody legacy of war crime,

Not to forget Industrial grime, 

Makes sub prime

Look frankly small time.

Millions of skeletal remains, or less

Bear witness to its savage prowess

At establishing slaughter and starvation,

On occupation and parasitic taxation.

You pose at your temples of doom

With crocodile poppies

As you annihilate Afghanis

Having drugged China with opium for decades

Free trade

The pasts clings onto your present

Don't forget it, we haven't.

From today we remember the victims of imperialisms past and present

We do not celebrate nor collect pity pounds for your storm troopers

Each of those souls had a choice.

They were wrong. Rejoice.

Oh starved of Bengal, eradicated Tasmanians

Heroic Mau Mau and Tipu Sultanians

We greet you.

We offer fatiha at your graves.
