The Passing Of Britannia, As Told By A Steward.


When you show Britannia tears

She will comfort you, cradle your soul

and make everything alright, show her

the face of heroism, of remaining loyal

to her throughout life, of being faithful

in a world in which she suspects she has done

many wrongs, then her tears are for you

to respect and kiss away gently

as they run down the side of her cheeks.

Britannia is old now, my Queen still fights

on, I see the rage, I feel its heart as she lays down,
