There they sit with our umbrella
as they have since the last war
with short stature and their teeth yellow.
Hypocrites down to their core.

Looking down their potato noses
at all the countries they lost to
trying to strike pompous poses
while waiting for their tea to brew.

but they have such great recent "leaders" who's there now?
A bunch of sheep and drey ox breeders
if their in bred "men" remember how.

Their people apparently even think poetry
is still alive in their tiny land
as they look toward us when they want to see
any verse that's really grand.

Their latest excuse for a poet?
A turd whose real name rhymes with fairy
who never fails to really blow it
any time he sees any cock that tarries.

I'm British too! LoL I have to say I love this, although I take much offence at potato nose! LMAO
Entertaining indeed...

Thank you...Teddy

This is a targeted poem and don't worry you are not the quarry I aimed it at lol.

personal attacks on authors are not permitted.

Our Chatroom is open 24/7 Feel free to use it for
keeping in touch We have poets around the world and it is fun
to have real-time conversations with those that are up
all night or on the other side of the world.

Tell me something I don't already know. But since I didn't name anybody I don't think this applies to this missile. Names that could rhyme with fairy : Larry, Gary, Terry, Jerry, Harry, ....need I go on?

I don't see this as targeted at anyone but just really funny and poking fun at the British in general, I'm British and we as a nation always make fun of the British upper lip I've never heard potato nose before so it's really funny and so true. I like when you show another muse it's amusing. Of course I don't think anyone would take offence at this it's just fun, in my nose anyway, I mean eyes!

Thank you...Teddy

I shall be sending it round the UK so I'll let you know what my friends say

Thank you...Teddy
