One keeps in touch now via SkyNews:

it seems we're still at war.

We both, habitually, peruse

the Sport for England's score

(although it's easy, here, to lose

track what these things stand for).

 

One learns of how it all went wrong

in emails from one's friends.

I still don't speak the native tongue -

the weather makes amends...

You ask me just where I belong

but that, I think, depends

 

as we harbour in our own style

(and where-ever we might roam)

the wholly obstinate denial

that things change from what we've known

- so we feel much more In Exile

when on holiday 'back Home'.
