Foreigners are shocked at our impeccable English,
Not knowing that we speak this because we were once servile,
And we continue to educate our young in the tongue of the empire,
Politicians, artists, intellectuals, and I decry colonial mentality
In straight English,
Subjects and verbs agree,
Pronunciation and perspicacity.
