RDP Wednesday: Delate

River Thames looking North, London

Did I delate London 50 years ago?
I came to Switzerland not to dalate
But to discover
although dalation happened
I have no longer a British passport
It is too old and too complicated to renew
They say you can take a girl out of London
You cannot take London out of a girl
But you can, it happened to me
I speak English
But no longer so perfect
I cook English
But no longer so perfect
I have family in England
But no longer so many
I have friends in England
They grow older as I do
I have not denounced England
It is on my documents, born British
20 years in London
52 years in Switzerland
Judge for yourself

    • You don’t really forget it, but you finally invent your own language with a mixture of words. We Brits in Switzerland all seem to be speaking our own language
