The Royal Poet Laureate-in waiting, Ian Pentameter of ‘Hemingwoy’, the fifth-from-last house on Magnautitronland Island Boulevard (soon to be renamed ‘The Rue Royal’) wrote our new anthem between shifts at the Magnautic Garbage Depot. It will be sung by the Weiner Schnitzel Choir during the Coronation. Ian is working on 63 easy to remember verses in total, and doing a music arrangement for massed kazoos and wobble boards. Here’s a sample:
Magnautic Island, youse’re the place wot gives a smile to every face.
Down in the dumps or suicidal, we’ll cheer youse up, yer’ll find
No swamps and mangroves standin’ proud –
in our National Park they’re not allowed,
We do like birds an grubs and trees - ‘live an let live’s’ what we believes.
So all youse Gummunt dudes an bucarats, fuck off outa here ‘n eat yer hats.
We’re proud an free an fulla beans,
We’re Magnautitronlandereens , wotever that means.
