WALKABOUTSVERSE 212 OF 230

Poem 212 of 230:  REMEMBER THEM?

Back when we became defenders
    (We have plainly been attackers),
Defenders’ blood, sweat and years
    Were paid to keep a good home-way -
A way yet to be part stealth-blown,
    As mass immigration gained-sway
And as we slipped as maintainers.

(C) David Franks 2003
