Internet Exercise again!

Take a poem you like, get the last line and use it as the first line of a poem of your own

Poem used is Robert Blakes "A Little Boy Lost"

Read it HERE

Are such things done on Albion's shore?
tragedy and misery
weeping parents, boys and girls
and nothing more?

Black and whites, now shades of grey
confuse us all, confuse night from day

no longer are the lines as clear
as they were in yesteryear,
but rather now they are a blur
Do you oppose these things, good sir?

If you do, stand up and fight!
Shout out it out with all your might!
Do the thing you think is right
if it fills you with delight!

But nay you say,
I can't, I won't!
Consequences far too grim
I'll be battered and alone.

Are such things done on Albion's shore?
A man's respect, his self-worth
put down, his horror someone's mirth

Quiet he stays, quiet he'll remain
he'll sit and watch and nothing more,
Are such things done on Albion's shore?
