23 June 2016 - poem
23 June 2016
Will England truly be England again
Free of those inky blots old Gaunt contemned
And harsh Napoleonic edicts signed
In the name of a housepet Belgian king?
Dover’s white cliffs stand sentinel in the sun
The Saxon horse still prances on chalk hills
Free men follow the plough and work the mills
And merry Sherwood still boasts a tree or two
Now to the pub to celebrate this day -
With a pint and a song and a kiss from Joan!
