The British Comments

Rating: 3.6
Take some Picts, Celts and Silures
And let them settle,
Then overrun them with Roman conquerors.

Shouldn't it be equal justice under the law? What's this social justice nonsense? I believe Marx introduced this utopian hogwash, and we've seen what kind of outcomes that ideology has produced.

A great poem giving the genesis of the formation of britishers and their culture with the blend of people from different parts of the world and their cultures. Indeed a modern poem in true sense,

Dear great Poet, where are the inhabitants from Israel, Korea, Portugal and The Netherlands? Not so important or too few, I think. But however, you wrote a splendid and fascinating read, with some humor in it. Most deserving the Modern Poem Of The Day. Hooray! 5 Stars Full Vote, so very pity that you don't write new poems anymore on this beautiful poem site. Thanks for sharing
