A Poem dedicated to Brexit

Leave or Remain?

They asked us to choose

-- Advertisement --

While never imagining

A chance they could lose

 

So we went in our hoards


And walked through the rain

We were told that this chance


Would not come again

 

We will honour your choice

Whatever you decide

Remainers and Leavers

Will stand side by side

 

Clear in the knowledge

That when it was done

The people of Great Britain

Would move on as one

 

But when it was settled

No one could believe

That the people had spoken

And voted to Leave

 

Apocolyptic warnings

And the threat of disaster

But the British people wanted

A better hereafter

 

Farage was ecstatic

And told the EU so

After twenty five years

Of campaigning to go

 

Cameron deserted

The very next day

And stepping into the limelight

Prime Minister May

 

An election was called

To ensure she could go

To reach an agreement

But hold on………no

 

The Polls were wrong

The country had spoken

And punished the Tories

The remainers had woken

 

A coalition was needed

But who would it be

The Liberals or Greens?

It’s …….The DUP

And the price that it took?

To hold back the hounds

For ten more votes?

One Billion Pounds

 

So an agreement to secure

The way that we left

Was drafted and published

And it left us bereft

 

We had given our answer

Yet the political elite

Had crawled to the EU

And fell at their feet

 

Apologising that we wanted

Our sovereignty restored

The will of the people

Dismissed and ignored

 

The Backstop and Trade Deals

Were all we discussed

Endless scenarios

All left us concussed

 

The remainers undaunted

Still couldn’t conceive

That the people of Britain

Had voted to Leave

 

Leavers are racist

And don’t understand

Leavers are stupid

This has to be canned

 

Three times Mrs May

Tried to get her deal through

But Soubry and Corbyn

Knew better than you

 

A majority for nothing

Just extend and extend

She fell on her sword

Dancing Queen’s at her end

 

So now we have Boris

And the break will be clean

He’s promised we’re going

Well…….Around Halloween

 

But remainers aren’t willing

To sit there and take it

Just show us the deal

And we’re going to break it

The Leavers are wrong

We don’t care how they feel

So we’re passing a bill

Which removes a NO DEAL

 

Grieve and his cronies

Have now had their say

And Boris is saying

We’re not going to stay

 

Ken Clarke is ejected

And twenty others besides

Is this really The House

Where democracy resides?

 

Parliament suspended

And the courts intervene

They call Boris dishonest

Did he lie to the Queen?

 

Three years of waiting

Has brought us to this

A sunny tomorrow?

Or on the edge of an abyss?

 

No closer, No further

From leaving the EU

And no one agrees

On what we should do

 

Brexit divides

And raises debate

It stirs up emotion

Causes people to hate

 

The Referendum was fair

And we all had our say

We won’t let you ignore it

And we won’t go away

 

You asked us to choose

Simply our choice

So maybe The Leavers

Should now raise their voice

 

We’re not stupid or Racist

We said what to do

So, now honour our instruction

And the Red, White and Blue
