The tea isn’t good, and the chocolate’s like wax,
The beer isn’t stout, and the comedy’s lax;
They don’t “get” soccer and think it’s a plot
To undermine the world and put the Commies on top.
For America’s an idea, among the best thoughts of man,
Even to a Manchester United/Glasgow Rangers fan;
And because it’s a place with an exceptional spark,
Best light a candle and not curse the dark.
