Johnny Foreigner


From a foreign shore

Enter by

Discreet side door

Climb the steps

To viewing place

Dark skinned guests

From a distant race


Distant places

Were our forte


And military sortee

Ruled the world

This little island

Empire builders

Now asylum


People come

In tiny dinghies

Brave the water

Many sinking

The world we plundered

Returns the favour

Glad you came

We need your labour
