The Stranglehold of English Lit

Those questions, sister,

Those questions stand stab jab and gore too close to the centre!

For if we had asked

why Jane Austen’s people

carouse all day

and do no work

would Europe in Africa

have stood

the test of time?

and would she still maul

the flower of our youth

in the south?

Would she? Your elegance of deceit,

Jane Austen,

lulled the sons and daughters

of the dispossessed

into a calf-love

with irony and satire

around imaginary people.

While history went on mocking

the victims of branding iron

and sugar-plantations

that made Jane Austen’s people

wealthy beyond compare!

Eng. Lit. , my sister,

was more than a cruel joke-

it was the heart

of alien conquest.
