Dane Dems Dum or Dummer

Ah to live in the Land of Cockaigne,  Luikkerland

All you loafers and gluttons always lying about

Politician, bureaucrat, lawyer, you live without work

Here the fences are sausages, the houses are cake,

And the fowl fly roasted, ready to eat.     -adapted from Flemish verse

    I would be interested in the original flemish text, since it is my mother tongue. Luikkerland? Shouldn’t that be lui-lekker-land, maybe I am confused but it doesn’t make any sense to me.
    I really enjoy your blog by the way.
    Greetings with a hewn flavor and adzed finish.

    • I adapted it from already translated text, (lui meaning lazy, lekker meaning gluttonous)
      The original verse was published by Hieronymus Cock with The engraving of ‘The Land of Cockaigne’
      Pieter Bruegel – Artist of Abundance
      I substitued lawyer, politician, bureaucrat, from Farmer, Soldier, Clerk……
      Thank You
