The EU

I found this amusing.

Won't you join our common market said the spider to the fly.
It really is a winner and the cost is not too high.

I know DE Gaulle said no, but he hadn't got a clue.
We want you in, my friends and I - for we have plans for you.
Of course, you'll have to pay a little more than we all do.

Just for now - as our much loved Herr Kohl said,
and I agree - we really need a new mulch cow in bed.
It's just a continental term - believe me, mon ami;
like 'Vive la France' or mad Anglais or even EEC.

As to the rules, don't worry friend, there's really but a few,
you'll find that we ignore them - but they'll all apply to you.
Give and share between us, that's what it's all about,
you do all the giving, and we all share it out.

It's very British, is it not, to help a friend in need?
You've done it twice in two world wars, a fact we must concede.
So jump upon the market train, don't sit there on the side,
your Continental cousins want to take you for a ride.

Growing old is mandatory, growing up discretionary, laughing at yourself positively therapeutic.
