king coronation stolen diamonds
in a crown above a scottish stone
king coronation stolen taxes
for a three-day weekend of hollow celebration
king coronation stolen moments
from a history of fragmented narratives
a king
a coronation
a country in decline
this terminal pricelessness
is costing too much
measured in
frozen bodies
the sadness
of seeing millions
forget themselves

Our freedom of movement.
Taken from us.
Our continental education.
Those frictionless borders.
All those deep friendships.
Ripped apart.
That closest trading bloc.
Cut off.
Those lowest common denominator vultures.
A rigged plebiscite.
This pariah of a country.

Today’s #MastoPrompt was #priceless.

There’s not much else to say.

Except that today has been full of friends sending me messages. And that makes me happy.
