The European Union is in trouble, and in an attempt to save it, France and Germany produced a scheme that was rejected by several EU members, Britain included. It seems the British are finally getting their backs up about the steady erosion of British sovereignty. Maybe they remember some of their history after all. While strolling through the park in London I spied a tiny, flamboyantly dressed woman firing up the crowd.



“The German shall not rule this land!”

Thus Boadicea spake

And withal gathered up her arms

For much there was at stake

“The Roman fled before my sword!”

She cried and raised the flag

“We shall not yield our future for

An empty euro bag!”

So saying she bestrode her horse

The Brusselsmen to slay

And ran them through with tempered steel

And thusly saved the day

“For Britain bows to no man’s threat!”

She cried, “The Zone be damned!

And let those Eurocrats right up

Their fundaments be jammed!”

The Reckoning

The reckoning is here for the European Union and the Euro. Too much socialism, too many people working lazy hours for exorbitant pay, too many vacation days, too much regulation, too few entrepreneurs, too many bureaucrats, too many lefty politicians promising the sun and moon, all hastening the coming of the asteroid that will one day hit and wipe out all lefty life.



Egads here comes the reckoning

The bony finger beckoning

And laughing what-the-heckoning

While driving a black hearse

The prospect far too sickening

The grinning clock is tickening

Resistance now is thickening

And things are getting worse

Economies are stuttering

The cringing public muttering

Politicos are puttering

And reach for Deutschland’s purse

And down will come the EU dream

Not with a sigh but with a scream

The shining light now but a gleam

Death socialism’s curse



The Cretaceous

Is the euro a dinosaur? Will the asteroid miss the Yucatan and hit Brussels? The Eurozone bids fair to be a thing of the past in twelve months or less, as German taxpayers grow very weary of bailing out a debt-ridden and profligate Europe that has always acted as if they could spend and borrow and grow their debt in any manner they pleased, secure in the knowledge that Germany and the United States, in the person of the International Monetary Fund, would come to the rescue and permit them to continue to live will beyond their means and at the expense of others who actually work. The Euro, as a common European currency, has been a dismal failure. The question is, what happens to the European Union, designed to protect Europe from Germany? That too has been a failure, for Germany has finally won the war, after all these years.



My heavens, goodness gracious

If it isn’t the Cretaceous

Large animals are roaming everywhere

They look like thunder lizards

Golden euros fill their gizzards

And they trample everyone without a care

But look now, see, they’re dying

And it’s not for lack of trying

To stay solvent and upright and in command

But their days they are now numbered

With their balance sheets encumbered

And soon from streams their fossils will be panned

But wither goes the EU

When the euro says I’ll see you

As it will when Germans rise and say no more

We’ll be back to nineteen thirty

And we’ll all get down and dirty

When the German army marches off to war
