Brexit Update (August 2017)

 

We view the prospect before us
with the uncertain mood of our weather clutching
all kinds of lucky charms in shallow sleep
we stormed away from the mainland
now all our fingers are crossed 
that we don't wake up up
to our necks in deep water

Our seers are forecasting like mad
but who can really see around corners
no-one here would like to 
find themselves adrift in a slo-mo crash
but our brave faces harbour fears
of tragic pile-ups on this treacherous road

A fever runs throughout the land
all that could be said to others gallops
round and round our splitting heads
yet at the chance to speak we trade 
slogan for slogan laughing off the gravity 
posed as bouyant and light-hearted hahaha

Let's remember brave and intrepid predecessors who took
on the unknown, determined (but destined) to find their own freedom. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
