Englishman in Disguise
I wrote a poem about being 1/2 Scandinavian and 1/2 Irish
The English spirits of my long ago past are a little upset!
If you think Vikings and the Irish can get hacked,
well, they do, but the English only get mildly annoyed
A Viking will slash you with a broad sword,
an Irishman will smack you around until you squeal like a little girl,
unless you are a little girl, in which case,
he’ll just have to be satisfied with beer,
because he’d never hit a little girl
Apparently, there’s mostly little girls around,
because he drinks quite a bit of beer!
But an Englishman, he’ll go out of his way to
avoid a jolly row, eh?
So, better make me 1/3 Scandinavian, 1/3 Irish,
and 1/3 English
