Ghost Minister (DRAFT)

Ballroom etiquette of Southwark
council cats fat on long rot
files you back to the divisible
I, William Blake charter'd for all to see
from your window grouting
small yellow forgotten people
unchecked in scullery the pewter scrubs
in undercrofts the downpours are
Jerusalem, you get entrepreneurial
children mills sprayed silver 
in three-piece suits summoning
pride what we hope to aspire,
winkle picked recruitment agencies 
consider my domicile
is still a military fortification
and i am not the proprietor
