Semper Eadem

Those with a smattering of European History will not be entirely surprised at Angela Merkel, Chancellor of Prussia, sorry, Germany, being in favour of a Juncker running the shop.

It would be in keeping with the longer traditions of Europe in relation to an honourable status of rank and family.  They have been around for a long time.

Accordingly, and to show respect for this adherence to ancient ruling classes, the proper answer from someone with poetical contacts of one sort or another in the family is to pen, or rather blog, an Ode To Europe.

There was an old man called Juncker,
Who made a bit of a clunker.
He bet on the Euro,
Which sent him quite neuro'
So they packed him off to a bunker.

Nominations for one award or another would be welcome, we could do with a free night out.
