Some Things Dutch

The impeccable reputation

The Dutch generally enjoy

Has always surprised me

To a certain extent

There is truth in the saying

‘God created the world

And the Dutch made Holland’

But, as the Dutch use to say

‘Money doesn’t stink’

Not even if it comes from slavery,

Colonization or genocide

History has a short memory

Concerning some things Dutch
