One Love Manchester 2019
I'm so proud to be British, 
so proud of the west, 
the unity and love we possess 
empathy and passion,
for it is our fashion 
and it only makes us stronger 
it only gives us more determination.
it only makes us stand...Read More

Duke of York Uncorked
Prince Andrew in the press is tried, but he denied
both far and wide, as Duke of York (soon Earl?),
a train of thought upon the side,
a rain of sweat upon a girl.
Please, cork that Duke before I swirl!

The Elusive Danny Kruger
Why Danny, so cute, but elusive
Ornamental and yet unobtrusive
Preferring to stay
At the end of the day
In locations a tad more exclusive

Why Danny, you see, while there's cheese
In the pond and the voters to please
You could pop in to town

Williams Since 1066

First a quick word on Robert the Devil,
whose turbulent  life turned out quite a revel.
He fathered a child on a poor tanner's daughter
then dashed to repent in Jerusalem's quarter,
but on his return, sad to say, he died,
yet he set...Read More

A State Of Mind Of Maine Of Florida
When the sun goes down in Maine
Ice defines the name of winter
Snow melts the hearts of children
Who step inside to play Monopoly
Fathers cut holes in the frozen lake
There must be a fish or two to catch

Florida hangs on to summer...Read More

Just Know It's True We Are Leaving The EU
I know you are in pain,

you'll insult no more,

Premium Member Disarray
We have had news from the Front late today,
Brought by one of the Duke's trusted aides,
That the French army is in disarray,
As the threat from Napoleon fades.

It seems it was a most dreadful display,
Dead men on that battlefield laid,
A sense...Read More

American Thanksgiving (1621)

Passengers in England boarded the Mayflower
To cross the Atlantic for the New World.
To escape religious persecution
For worshipping God as they saw fit
With separation of Church and state, God and King.

They suffered hardship that first winter 
Off Plymouth Rock...Read More

Believe it or not there's a town in England
Called “Scratchy Bottom” hard to say it without tinkling
Try not to chuckle
Or try not to buckle
It's for real, those Brits are constantly winking

Of Tetley's and V-2's
Of Tetley’s and V-2's
(or, “Why Not to Bomb the Brits”)
by Michael R. Burch

The English are very hospitable,
but tea-less, alas, they grow pitiable ...
or pitiless, rather,
and quite in a lather!
O bother, they're more than formidable....Read More

The Sweetest place in dear England,
Is the Village of Dandelion Mizzle,
Where breezes smell of Butterscotch,
and rain tastes of Sherbet Lemon Drizzle.

They say oh this old bollocks trick

Opposite them we have remain

Today, as we skirt the bare field,
there is nothing but us and the sky
and the white horse nodding us by.

The soil is slick with the remnants
of the rain that we dodged yesterday.
The tracks of a dog mark our way.
