England dies for everyone
Sooner or later
Usually before we know it
England dies
And is replaced by another
A meretricious simulacrum
Of uniforms and royals
Of watery bitter and crumpets for tea
Of fading hopes and dreams of war
Of cops on the take and spivs on the make
Of grasping bastards praying for knighthoods
England dies
And power appears

England died with Duncan Edwards
After the crash in Munich
