Oh the nation of great philosophical tradition,
You’re a cradle once of European civilization;
Oh the home of Homer, Socrates, Pythagoras, Aristotle and Plato,
We pity you, for the gathering grey clouds above you.
Philosophy, logic, ethics, science and poetics,
Knowledge all born amid your critical thoughts,
From times of antiquity, flourished your enquiring thirst,
Today though, changed times burden your economy to burst.
Philosophised once you wisdom to the world,
Plundered now have you all great knowledge of (g)old;
Let not the current economic ignorance sink you deep into debt seas;
Instead, let the rays of economic prudence pierce through the hanging grey clouds
