I don’t like Holland

I don’t like Holland. It’s a fact I cannot deny. I don’t like Holland. Ever since I lived in England for a while I have loved that country. People are nice, food is nice, there is virtually nothing that can be compared to cooked breakfast with the full works. I have some friends over there that I really love and this friendship can only be compared with the friendship I have with the two friends I have had since primary school. I don’t like Holland.

I do love my family, my wife, my four children and perhaps a few more people. But that’s it, this country sucks. People are nice, country sucks. Government sucks too, except that they pay for my medication which is nice. If only there wasn’t all that water in between England and me I’d live there with my family. Cooked breakfast, The Works. Drive on the left side and actually enjoy it. Try that over here, not that good.

I don’t like Holland and England is better. There, I said it. Thing is: I cannot leave this place. You see, I told you a little lie. Holland is not that bad either. People I love are here too.

Leendert van Gemeren

Dit ben ik, Leendert. Ik ben een beetje ouderwets en houd van dingen die geweest zijn, bijvoorbeeld oude Engelse series op TV zoals All Creatures Great And Small, mechanische horloges, bifocale brillen en oude langspeelplaten. Ik houd niet van moderne dingen en werk regelmatig aan een ouderwetse modelspoorbaan. Ik volg Jezus en schrijf mijn gedichten soms ook over Hem maar ik schrijf ook verhalen over het leven. Excentriek. Op feestjes ben ik vaak te vinden in de keuken.

This is me, Leendert. I am a little bit old-fashioned and I love things from the past, old series like All Creatures Great And Small, mechanical wristwatches, bi-focal glasses and vinyl records for example. I am not keen on modern things and I often work on this old style model railway. I follow Jesus and sometimes write a poem about Him but I also write about my life. Eccentric. You can often find me in the kitchen at parties.
