Independence Day

George the third.
(Speaking to his footman Roger)

Tell me Woger is it wite
The Americans had a party?
And yet we got no invite
I think that’s weally farty.

Your Majesty t’was quite a shambles
At Boston by the sea
Those dammed colonials up rose
Destroying all our tea!

Oh Woger, not the tea
Those Amewicans are barbeweons
That weally is a twagedy
Almost beyond compareons.
(Remember George the third was mad)

That nation will come a cwopper
They’ll soon dance a diffewent tune
They’ve as much chance of survival
As walking on the moon.

do you want the tea back? I'll have you know it was perfectly in our rights to throw it overboard as we bought it from Fergie.. however if you really want it back I got a few boxes of herbal tea I'll pack up and send your way, considering I'm never going to drink it..

George was mad.. but that idiot sent over to be Governor of New York, Edward Hyde, was totally whacked.. I think there must have been alot of looney nutjobs running around back then..

enjoyed,

~ Daniel

Ah Foggy, I am a Yankee and proud of it! The Boston Tea Party was the best thing that ever happened for morale in America! You can have the tea back if you like, we all drink coffee from Brazil now, most of us do. Cute poem and a great spoof on the wicked man indeed! Roll Laughing Enjoyed

Oddly enough, in your version, Foggy, Georgie was right in the end! We stood equal chance--success at both surviving and walking on the moon. Smile

Very witty and comical write. Much enjoyed.

I tend to forget that American holidays are not shared by our brothers across the water. I once got a very uncomfortable silence on a conference call to tech support as I asked the English gentlemen on the other end of the call how he felt having to work on a holiday (July 4th) weekend.

Having become recently infatuated with Amewican histowy, I absolutely loooved this.
Especially that closing stanza, it is something I found common throughout the research I have done; that looming mountain and the way those early Americans just put their heads down and found a way through or around or over or even under.
I don't think there is a single modern country that contributed so much to the modern world.

Much enjoyed, as always.

I have bumped this up as my way of saying Happy Independence day, it is however my view that you would have been better off staying British but you don't seem to have done too badly.
