London-sonet 26

BLAST First (from politeness) ENGLAND
CURSE ITS CLIMATE FOR ITS SINS AND INFECTIONS
DISMAL SYMBOL, SET round our bodies
of effiminate lout within

VICTORIAN VAMPIRE, the LONDON cloud
sucks the TOWN'S heart.
A 1000 MILE LONG, 2 KILOMETER Deep
BODY OF WATER even, is pushed against us

from the Floridas, TO MAKE US MILD
OFFICIOUS MOUNTAINS keep back DRASTIC WINDS
SO MUCH VAST MACHINERY TO PRODUCE

THE CURATE of "Eltham"/ BRITANNIC ÆSTHETE
WILD NATURE CRANK/ DOMESTICATED POLICEMAN
LONDON COLISEUM/ SOCIALIST-PLAYWRIGHT
