A cultural moment


English Teeth, English Teeth!
Shining in the sun
A part of British heritage
Aye, each and every one.
English Teeth, Happy Teeth!
Always having fun
Clamping down on bits of fish
And sausages half done.
English Teeth! HEROES' Teeth!
Hear them click! and clack!
Let's sing a song of praise to them -
Three Cheers for the Brown Grey and Black. 


 By Spike Milligan.

I apologise to all the English people reading this (of which I'm one), but Spike's poems were part of my childhood and they are quite brilliant.
