Ode to St. George (extract)
St. George’s Day is here.
England never shall have
Anything to fear!
Land of Hope and Glory
Mother of the Free
We have no national holiday
Now how can that be?
St. George, get off your charger
And come and sort this out.
If you truly champion valour
Then leave us in no doubt.
We know the dragon was a myth
Though it made a real good story.
It was and is a favourite still
With kids and Jackanory.
We know you had no English blood
Nor stepped foot on our shores.
And armed with this surprising knowledge
Surely we have cause to pause?
So why choose you, as patron saint
To represent our land?
Come tell us what we need to know
Or we shall get you banned!
Who is our patron saint?
Please say England never shall have
Cause to faint.
