Promises promises...


So today the Country voted, based on what the politicians said

The party with most votes counted, as we adjourn to bed.

For most, come the morning, as the night draws to a close 

The nation then will learn, is our leader the one they choose.


Then the job begins, the losers disparate

The winners in their seats of power, gather, congregate.

The Bullingdon Buffon Boris, I feel, will retain his position

Continuing in his current role, this of course, is supposition


As opposition leaders dissipate, and slowly fad from view

Then the struggle really starts, there is a job to do.

Can our Countries Prime Mister deliver on his promise

and our new cabinet prove, to the doubters they are honest


Brexit will be pivotal, to get us off on the right path

The island of Ireland, I fear will vent their wrath

A nation strongly divided; differences unreconciled

As we no longer stand ‘The Great British Isles’


Hospitals in disarray, as waiting lists grow longer

These things and more, I cannot help but ponder

Homelessness more prevalent, poverty increases

The taxes on the rich, in real terms still decreases.


People slowly start to see, the changes that were promised

As each day passes then will see, that governments are dishonest

For if my supposition’s wrong and Corbyn’s voted in

I can promise you for certain, I’ll feel absolutely no chagrin

It still hasn't sunk in, but I suppose that the result was inevitable.
