A nation that once directed the world –
Now left behind at the twilight rest home.
No one ever wants to pay a visit;
They won’t even call you up on the phone.
Your arrogance merely humours others;
They wish you would just take your final breath.
Many are tired of your insanity;
They wonder how long before you find death.
Too much open criticism aimed at you;
A once proud people now a global joke.
It is now cool to mock your old carcass;
From political envy to dead broke.
The world is ready to see you depart;
You no longer have place at the table.
Your once vital voice is now overlooked;
No one believes you are still capable.
