Letter to David Cameron (VH)

Vala Hafstað's picture

Dear David, I’ll send you my power

And charge by the kilowatt-hour.

You Brits will again see the light—

No blackouts; your future is bright.

----

Who says that the mood here is sour?

To me, it’s the happiest hour.

I’m having a bottle of beer

For this is a reason to cheer.

----

Who cares about nature protection?

For that, I have zero affection.

I’m tired of tourists and now

I’ll rid us of them; here is how:

----

I’ll dam every creek on the island—

Especially those in the highlands.

To me, they are rivers of gold

With power that ought to be sold.

----

Our rivers should not be admired

For looks, but for power acquired.

And powerful, that’s what I am

When building up dam after dam.

----

And then all the tourists will leave us;

It certainly will not aggrieve us.

We’re tired of crowds and of queues,

Which day after day bring the blues.

----

Then rent will go down as expected,

And I’ll be the one reelected.

They’ll call me the man with the might

To tell the Brits, “Let there be light.”

----

That’s all I can say in my letter.

Our friendship is better and better,

And playing with Legos was wise:

It’s good to build ties without ties.

----
