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.

I'm Scottish but I live in New Zealand ! I write stories and poetry. My dog Charlie is a great sounding board.
