Europe My Realm Of Conquest
Author: Joseph Ogbonna
Europe my realm and my prized possession,
I instill in thee our novel ideals,
For your feudal laws our conquest repeals.
Our boisterous wind of emancipation
liberates Spain's draconian inquisition,
of the proud Brits' stupendous earning power
an Egyptian campaign would rest the case.
I have made subservient Austria to face
defeat and lasting capitulation.
By sheer divine providence I soar
above my Italian inheritance
bequeathed by Papal authority,
and placed in custody of my viceroy.
By my might I brought to subjugation
the recalcitrant fiefdom of Russia
and the resilient kingdom of Prussia.
Not even Portugal dared resistance,
with her weak army debased like a toy,
but in sudden flight and rare sobriety,
her sovereign lord bowed to abdication.
