Manchester

So they’ll detonate a few bombs in throughout our great cities,

kill our friends and families,

but refuse to destroy our spirits,

because after all, we built this, from nothing

We used to live in stick houses and make fire with our bare hands,

from that we discovered bricks and glass,

we created paths, carriages and horses, the romans built them poker straight,

we edited that to create twists and turns and then machines that could navigate those,

the saxons invaded us giving our country its name, altering our language, we have never been afraid to let others edit our culture , to settle here and share this land we call home but your attacks will never become part of our daily lives, we will always be horrified by them and what you are doing to those in your own countries,

we stood up to Hitler and his nazis ensuring he would surrender,

his bombs destructed most of the country,

but we rebuilt our churches, hospitals and homes,

Hitler didn’t even get close to our landmarks,

St Pauls and Battersea remained with just a nick in their side repaired in no time.

Horrors of that were forgotten when we all got high and sung along to the Beatles in the 60s,

The IRA haunted us for over twenty years attempting to blow up our primeministers and devestate our cities including the one you’ve just hit.

Nah, I don’t think you’re gonna get us mate, we’ll just grab a pint, drink to the memories of those we’ve lost and sit in our locals till you’re done, we’ve got enough breweries to keep us going, enough chippuies to fulfill our hunger, enough Oasis, The Smiths and Stones to drown out the sound of your hate preaching. There will be minutes of remembrance at our concerts, football matches followed by cheering as loud as we can to show our support to those who have lost people but not their fine spirit.

We are grateful to everyone who has contributed to our communities, helped build them, the Pakistanis that have become doctors, the Iranians who are teachers, all of these embody what is is to be British and help to repair the damage that you have done.

What you represent is not a religion but your own greed and own cruel will you wish to inflict upon the entire world. 

We are British, but above all, we are human beings with conscience, something you fail to acknowledge in your mission to play God and sabotage our way life of life.
