The Englishman…

Filed under: Ungrouped — Vasilios Theodorakis @ 6:00 pm

Of tempered manner,
Refined in stance,
Class-ed brow,
And fine cut hair.
You are, what the colonies were built on.
You are the muscle,
You are the backbone,
You are the worker left behind
When empire building
Was done with.
Yet, you continue the tradition
Of all that was best
About Queen and Country.

Too bad the ‘cultured’
Only know you as ‘the drunk’,
And not the gentleman
That you truly are.

Dedication (For Joseph Plunkett)
