Boris, by Francis Salvesen. February 2021
One Nation, One Country, One new sense of Pride
One foot stepping forwards, two ‘at ease’ astride,
Combining our strengths so we’re on the same side
This New Brexit Britain is turning the tide.
With Europe we share many wonderful traits
with France, we drink wine and with Spain we share Straits
On Balance we weighed up the ways of our fates
Preferring to speak with our more friendly mates!
We make our own laws, for our own way of life
policy choices we cut with our knife
our own people first if we ever feel strife:
we won’t make a partnership our of a wife!
Our Boris is building the Britain we need
With roads and with rail and with free ports to feed
The trade deals we want – and we’re winning indeed –
The Great British Spirit aspires to succeed!
We’re buying and trading with new clientele
We’re pulling together to make what we sell
improving efficiency, thrusters propel
Inventing new vaccines when you don’t feel well!
Like Churchill before him, behind him, near by
We may not be best, but by God we will try!
A Will with a Way, for we aim very high,
With Boris to lead and, in time, amplify!
