Mandalay

Quite appropriate, Boris, for an international gathering:

‘Er petticoat was yaller an’ ‘er little cap was green,
An’ ‘er name was Supi-yaw-lat – jes’ the same as Theebaw’s Queen,
An’ I seed her first a-smokin’ of a whackin’ white cheroot,
An’ a-wastin’ Christian kisses on an ‘eathen idol’s foot.

Keep it up, lad [unless you’re now too old]. Even more appropriate:

Take up the White Man’s burden—
Send forth the best ye breed—
Go, bind your sons to exile
To serve your captives’ need.

Cultural sensitivity in Myanmar, wot?

    Excellent choice of poetry by Boris. Does anyone really care regarding Johnny Foreigner?

      Boris is a strange one – he does good like this, also with his 4 point Brexit ultimatum, then does so many stupid things at the same time.
