Two Saints

 

George a Greek import

claimed

but Alban native

to England.

 

This the Church

of Gladstone, Disraeli.

 

George enclosed in iron,

his beaked feet

sharper than the dragon's.

 

Alban - nonchalant

in sandals -

shoulders a river of blood.

 

George to kill;

Alban to die,

Heaven's gates above them.
