"An Island Sold" (A sonnet to Jersey)
by Paul Mash
JERSEY! An atomic wasteland of social ambivalences
Whose fallout benefits the rich whilst poisoning the poor.
JERSEY! Governed by the ignorant and supported by the foolish
Whose sanctum sanctorum is the currency of capital.
JERSEY! An identity sold to the highest bidder
Whose price is paid by the native populace.
JERSEY! A golden palace built on the annals of her history
Whose uniqueness has been sold cheaply.
JERSEY! A place where birth and history mean nothin’And who I am, A JERSEYMAN, is diminished from the chronicles of history.
JERSEY! Stand and shout “I AM JERSEY,” and let rich and poor benefit equally
Listen to voices and let fairness and equality be embraced by all
JERSEY! Do not sell your soul to the rich and wealthy
