English folk would bend the knee

For a sovereign or a bride to be;

But there are those whom it would please

To see all England on its knees.

I understand that a lot of issues today run very deep. And knee-jerk reactions somehow always end up on the internet. But it was actually a (very proud) Englishman who taught me to use kneepads when working in the garden. 😛

Still I think it's best if we all move beyond nationalism.

“We have crushed the British to the ground, they are on their knees and they will not rise for a very long time.” Aleksandr Yakovenko, summing up Russian achievements during his tenure as UK ambassador, 2011-19. That period includes the Brexit vote, of course. And the project is working, with a Russian oligarch in the House of Lords!

Liked the spirit of this one! The kneebenders, if their knees are anything like mine, Brian, are more likely to be split!!! Great work for the orthopaedic surgeons, anyway.

I've jerked a few things in my life... never a knee M.C.

Small and sweet. Loved it.

The sad thing is, it is going down.

I'm hoping it will fade away in time...but baby showers and Haloween haven't so maybe it will be another thing to divide us a la Brexit. We'll be split between knee benders and non-knee benders.

Knee pad manufacturers - ramp up production!
