1st of August
Swiss love myths
They like their mountains and glaciers
And sing anthems, all fits
And get melody from the Brits
They are a Nation of “Skiers”
Not easy if you love beaches
They make good hikers and bikers
If not, they become one of the preachers
The Swiss are good art collectors
Their constitution is based on the Yankees
Not only are they good inventors
But had their own legendary marquees.
Engraved deriving from Psalms
A patriotic monk wrote the words
To bring God into the nature and realms
And being tuned into fine accords.
Each canton and communities have their activities
Integrity and solidarity are pronounced
They invite politicians and celebrities
Adding to the highlights and setting the grounds
There is more to say than this
People get emotional and patriotic
The elite think they owe a bliss
During champions league they get euphoric.
A history of battles we have long forgotten
What else do we remember from the past?
Politicians need to be besotted
Let’s have a new cast.
