Kingdom of Twisted Yarn

What on Earth

is a yarn

in a British accent ?


Hugh Grant perhaps

but you can’t be entirely serious

if you think he sounds

like he’d hang around

with Billy Connolly

By the way


Now Ewan McGregor

with that Perthshire lilt

Lovely in a kilt

but he ain’t no geezer

Chopped up in the freezer

by some Essex boys

Init Guvnor ?


Maybe talk a little Welsh

like a slow Indian


Or even a Hebridean

all up in the Skye


Not least

and at last

nasal Belfast


So a kingdom we are

not united

in speech

Even though

its English

the BBC teach


Whey aye man.
