And when the tides have ebbed and flowed
o'er ingerland's sweet history
remember well the glory owed
to 451's sweet mystery

brethren all, defying all
yon glorious anglo-saxon
in war, in commerce, soccerball
john terry loves his mum's tongue action

1066 and all that

if, likely as not, that verse should appal
with complaints against content or scansion

― acoleuthic,

you're considering plagiarism with feckless frivolity;
i'm remembering faminetime five ships a day,
accounting for current hibernian poverty,
i'm anticipating a further case of 'british fail to pay'
