Isolated Isle

Isolated Isle

This jewel that in the water stands

A once Imperial giant;

Comprised as it of many lands

Is now on many reliant;

But in the brains of those who lead

Our Kingdom still is uber all;

And planted well this Empire seed

Will constitute great shame and fall;

Our M.P.'s need humility

When dealing with this world today

Else things will be desultory

Where no-one gets to have their say;

Hence while now harsh words are traded

Isolated us now ended.

Author's Notes:
Since the 19th century The United Kingdom has become ever more the 'distant' player in Europe and yet still remains a bulldog with its rhetoric.  Thank goodness for our U.S. cousins without whom I fear we would almost be impotent on a global scale.

I often wish we were still under British rule!  All English poets are REQUIRED to write about their glorious country.  And here i am -- in New YORK after all!  Terrific, Sir Alistair!  --David
