Heroes of Great Britain

In Britain there are heroes, countless heroes galore,

You'll find these heroes everywhere, and in all of them I am in awe.

 

I'll tell you of these heroes, but, I bet you there's still more,

And with these heroes by our side we will win this war.

 

The NHS, Police, Firefighters, RNLI, Mountain rescue teams saving lives with every mountain that they soar,

You will find our heroes, and yes, there are still more.

 

Pharmacists, TV and Radio stations, Volunteers, Cleaners cleaning every floor,

You will find our heroes, and yes, there are still more.

 

Bus, Train, Tube, Taxi, and Delivery drivers, by the score,

You will find our heroes, and yes, there are still more.

 

Careers, Openreach, Support and Key workers, Postal staff delivering to every door,

You will find our heroes, and yes, there are still more.

 

GP Doctors, All their staff, Every shop, Hardware, and Supermarket store,

You will find our heroes, and yes, there are still more.

 

Council workers, Journalist's, Teacher's, and all the lovely Children helping mum and dad with a tiresome tedious chore,

You will find our heroes, and I bet you there's still more.

 

Forgive me all those heroes I may have missed but, please, I do implore,

I'll leave you with a very special hero who captured all our hearts including Captain Moore's.

 

Her name is Harmonie-Rose Allen, a true hero that we all adore,

With her courage, and heroics, she is simply just TOP drawer.

Ode to Captain Tom

The whole country is struggling with this deadly virus

we need more Captain Tom Moore's, who simply does what he does and without any fuss.

He started his journey to raise just a few pounds

tirelessly walking and walking around in his grounds.

One thousand pounds was his target as he began on his way,

but, it's now in excess of twenty-eight million and just keeps on growing larger and larger with each passing day.

His courage is so inspiring with a dedication that is just second to none,

and with Captain Tom Moore at the helm victory will, without any shadow of a doubt, be won.

He's so humble, so gentle, and incredibly kind,

heroes like him are just so hard to find.

Wearing his medals so proud Captain Tom Moore truly does standout in the crowd,

A true gent, a hero, of that there is no doubt

he's a man of deeds not words, a man who really is worth shouting about.

You are both Great Britain's heart as well as its soul,

and you have now gone a billion, trillion miles passed your goal, which is tremendous amazing and unbelievably good.

The nation stands, salutes and we all roar, for the indomitable Captain Tom Moore who so richly deserves to have a Knighthood.
