Jerusalem Mk II

And did those feet in ancient times

walk upon the streets of Rome and Athens

And was the holy lamb of Classics

slaughtered by the rising tide of fascism

emanating from somewhere behind the screen of your big TV.

The blade rained mercilessly only to blunt the blade

upon the hide of the sheep that was really an indestructible robot lamb

made by scientists in Englands green and pleasant land.
