“I was, once, infected with patriotism.
Overflowing with passion for the Mothercountry.
I was raised on patriotism, me.
Yes, yes, me – I’m talking about me.
I was never let alone to contemplate my own identity.
Cos I was Welsh and must never forget.
‘Twas was a valuable lesson in national pride.
I never questioned it, until now.
‘Cos now things have taken a turn for the worse.
How shall I put it? There’s no nice way.
I am living with an English man.
