The Sunday Posts 2016/ For Orlando





England is a cup of tea
France, a wheel of ripened Brie
Greece a short,squat olive tree
America is a gun.

Brazil is football in the sand
Argentina, Madonna's hand
Germany is an Oompah band
America is a gun.

Holland is a wooden shoe
Hungary, a goulash stew
Australia, a kangaroo
America is a gun.

Japan is a thermal spring
Scotland, a highland fling
Oh, better to be anything
Than America as a gun.

Good to see a Sunday Post Alistair, albeit prompted by tragedy. I am actually in the States at the moment (1st ever visit here), thankfully meeting folks who hold this sentiment also and hate that their country has become IDd with weapons... and Trump...
Sending peaceful greetings to you, YAMxx

Thank you Yamini,

Things have taken over where they shouldn't have and I have been remiss in posting lately. That's for me to sort and hopefully get things on track again.

Many thanks, as usual for your comment amd any others who have the patience to bear with me. I hope you enjoy the visit and are invigorated by the experience. Awra best m'dear. x

Awww thanks mate... just landed back this morning and am trying to get my head back into being four hours ahead of myself! The whole Brexit debacle has to be read up on (shudder) and have come straight into all the remembrance of Somme - Have watched throughout the day's offerings of ceremonies and histories and permitted a tear or few.

Trust all is going along well with you - life must take precedence! YAM xx
