Ev’ry Greek’s a hero, in his own eyes anyways;
he lusts for martyred glory as in the olden days.
Whether Persian, Ottoman, or Gauleiter in boots,
the Greek has met them all with rotten eggs and raucous hoots.
The European Union is no diff’rent, in their eyes,
and so they’ve killed their banks off instead of compromise.
