Poem of the day

The Englishman
by W.S. Gilbert (1836-1911)

He is an Englishman!
            For he himself has said it,
            And it’s greatly to his credit,
That he is an Englishman!
            For he might have been a Roosian,
            A French, or Turk, or Proosian,
Or perhaps Itali-an!
            But in spite of all temptations,
            To belong to other nations,
He remains an Englishman!
                  Hurrah!
For the true-born Englishman!
