Whilst We Trade Lies, Paris Burns

French invented their ethnic strife
Migrants merely executed it
In a mob of strays France lost its life
Its ethos seems forever split!

Whom France embraced as piteous strays
Are now more than its citizens
What their faith says their fear betrays
Who came in drifting caravans!

Orphans of fate why proliferate hate
In the streets of French forbearance
Indiscriminate charity of a state
Is no more than deathly dalliance!

French flock of flagrant fireflies
O’er every matter seems to spurn
The ‘other belief’ their souls despise –
“Whilst We Trade Lies Paris Burns”!
