Sir Anthony Eden

Sir Anthony Eden-pm-mc-pc

born an aristocrat near durham town
handsome debonair of great renown
a commissioned officer in the first world war
the 'military cross' for great valour

the battlefield he left behind
to oxford intellectuals he took his mind
arabic and persian was his choice
he quietly studied and spared his voice

At 23 years his future looked bright
already conditioned to fight the good fight
a passion for politics turned his head
the foreign office he made his bed

but chamberlin! chamberlin!- what is this
appeasement! when and how is this
Im going chamberlin-ive had enough
did you not see hitlers bluff

but chamberlin quickly took the point
swiftly resigning his nose out of joint
as foreign secretary,sir anthony was back
helping churchill form a coalition pack

minister for war this quiet man became
building the 'home guard' and making his name
in ‘55 his ambitions matured
As PM-- destiny assured

In ‘56 stormy waters he met
president nasser he would not abet
blocking the suez and straits of tiran
israels destruction the master plan

ill in body but mind alert
britains will he would assert
with french and israelis upon the attack
egyptian armies we swiftly did sack

russia and america ask us to leave
israelis safety-the UN would proceed
making him open the straits of tiran
unblocking the canal his workmen began

sir anthony later- would resign
For years his health had been in decline
In 77 this great englishman would die
St MARYS in wiltshire his body does lie

I considered it a great honour to drop with

3 Parachute group-The French foreign Legion, [paratroops]- And the Israeli [paratroops].That took the Mitla pass.

Great Britain! Vive le France! SHALOM ISRAEL! © 2002
