 LITTLE ISLAND BRITON

(In response to the alleged comments made by a Russian commentator) "Small Island that no one listens to"

My little Pixie land Briton...
Surrounded by the roaring Waves...
Off the Atlantic north sea...
We gave you romantic satirical/tragic plays by Shakespeare...
Wordsworth, Shelley, Byron, Burns & Dylan Thomas who wooed you off of your feet...
Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Bronte sisters & Lewis Carroll...
Showed you how deep the rabbit hole could go...
Robert Lewis Stevenson, Thomas Paine & Charles Darwin...
Challenged your worldly views...
Just to name a few...
We tinkered in engineering and steam engines...
Giving the world the Industrial revolution...
Playing with fire and Brimstone...
Converting base metals into puffing breathing machines...
Every little boys dream...
We are made up...
From four distinct specimens...
Scots, Welsh, Irish & English folk...
Giving you centuries of comedy entertainment...
From our little soaked sodden green & pleasant Pixie-land...
We gave you mighty rock bands...
Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Beatles, AC/DC, Judias Priests, Def Leppard, Moody Blues, Status Quo, The Hollies, Eric Clapton, Mike Oldfield-Tubular Bells, Sting, The Animals, Van Morrison, Procul Harem, Wizard, Sweet, Mud, Motor Head, Rainbow, Yes, Madness, The Pogues, The Cure, Enya, Kate Bush, Dusty Springfield, Radio Head, The Editors, Rolling Stones, The Shadows, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, Troggs, David Bowie, Peter Gabriel, Dave Gilmour, The Who, ELO, T.Rex, Slade, Sex Pistols, The Clash, The Police, Dire Straits, Oasis, Groove Armada & Cold Play.
Whose eternal music rings true in your ears...?
We Kept our Royal Family...
Even though they acted like dodgy wheeler-dealer relatives at times...
You gave us fermented potato's with ice...
With lots of natural Gas...
They say dynamite comes in small packages...
How right they are...
And we know where to shove it...
After centuries of digging experience...
Deep in the Bowels of Pixie-land...
We will guarantee to give you as much bang for your buck as possible...
As all the contents...
Splatter...
Upon the world's stage...
Sending you up the creek...
Without a paddle...
With a large Titanic hole...
Into your sinking continental ship...
