The British Stiff Upper Lip

We Brits seem to do disaster best
Our finest hour is often when we fail
We lost the entire light Brigade
And shouted “what heroes”,” Hail”.

We got our arses soundly kicked
On the Dunkirk killing ground
What a brilliant thing we said
Such heroism is rarely found.

Now Andy Murray has lost at Wimbledon
He WAS a hero, he took it on the chin
By British standards anyway
It’s not polite to win.

Dr Fogg

now just keep this in mind when the next world cup comes around, quite enjoyable my friend.. I do think that often people forget that trying your hardest makes you a winner regardless of any trophy.

You never fail to surprise with your pieces. I know there is always a criticism and I simply love that in your pieces. Great poem my friend.

Your right doc we have always had some of the best spin doctors around but the Battle of Britain followed Dunkirk, same odds, different result.

As for our ‘hero’ Murray no doubt he will console himself with the 20 million dollars he will make this year.

Yes, he gets 20 Million and that very attractive girlfriend, but I am down on the deal because I smoked 20 extra ciggys just watching it.

We Brits stick to what we know: disappointment.

Ha! Love it. It's so true. We love a challenge, if it means we can get silly and put union jack bunting up? Job's a good 'un. There's always next time eh?

Brilliant piece of poetry!

We even lost our Empire, but are we downhearted - "NOoooo" - just broke.
Loved the sarcasm in this one
