All Welcome


“All welcome!” Such an all-embracing phrase
Which seems to mean so much. But does in fact
Only pretend to all-inclusive ways
And covers up a lie with decent tact.
‘All welcome’ – means that they’ll welcome you all
Except the scum they don’t like to receive
Who’ll find short shrift if they make brave to call
Taking words at face value. How naïve!
‘All welcome’ just means: nothing of the sort.
A kind of empty mouthing of a phrase
To make oneself look better than they ought
To look: if truth external was displayed.
‘All welcome’: these two words are never true.
The speaker’s friends are welcome – but not you.
