Dugall Christie part 2


The Anglo-Saxon Club

Is still in very good shape.

And it is worth the occasional snub

To snip through its membership tape!

Master the understatement!

Speak in a measured tone!

If you want to be rich and powerful

Be an Anglo-Saxon clone!

Never focus attention

On yourself or on your deeds,

And never, never mention

Your love or emotional needs!

Frivolity is another requirement,

But pretending is good enough.

You have Anglo-Saxon refinement

If you resemble a ball of fluff

Never speak in earnest

Or show an axe to grind.

Adopt ways of the butterfly

With a light and witty mind.

Under that irrelevant surface

Your heart can beat as steal

For only if you not show it

Can an Anglo-Saxon feel!

Keep your mind neat and tidy,

Each “I” must have its dot.

Just like and English garden

Loose ends will make it rot!

Which leads to the ultimate lesson

On how the world goes round!

Learn these basic principles

And your character will be sound!

What is too confusing!

What seems is good for biz.

What is not important!

What seems is all there is!

So to an Anglo-Saxon it is boring

To hear a man with a cause.

And that explains the snoring

When I crusade on Canadian Laws!

Justice is a conscience, not a personal conscience but conscience of the whole of the humanity.
Those who clearly recognize the voice of their own conscience usually recognize also the voice of Justice.
