Rule, Britannia!

Rule, Britannia!


Britain has beaten Charlie Gard.
Hey, that’s what makes Great Britain great!
Against the hordes of “pro-life” hate,
She militates. She won’t be barred
From using tactics swift and hard.
Ill infants must accept their fate.
Parental units can’t be late
In giving dictates due regard.
And you who lacked the right degrees
Yet dared to spring to vile defense
Of Charlie’s life? Oh, spare us, please!
You never showed sufficient sense—
And now your howls are just a sneeze!
The state will govern all events….


—Tom Riley


(Charlie Gard dies.)
