BREXIT SYNDROME

Are we or aren't we going to leave?
No one is sure quite what to believe.
The nation has elected to be taken out.
Yet now the decision is in grave doubt,
courtesy of the minority "remainers"
oh such irritating complainers (!)
who've thrown the country into disarray -
civil unrest can't be far away!
They're demanding another Brexit vote,
although the majority chose metaphoric moat
between ourselves and Europe's State,
intending to firmly close the gate
on laws imposed from a foreign place.
Embarrassing it is and such a disgrace
that elected members refuse to honour
the people's wishes and so dishonour
all that made Britain great:
democracy and fair debate.
So come on guys, don't you think it's time
to finally behind Boris stand in line
and support him in a united front
against dictatorship's power hunt?
This is our domain and not theirs,
a precious inheritance to leave our heirs.
We are not German, French or Irish,
but independent and singularly British.
Just think for a moment all you who doubt,
what has our culture always been about -
a self-sufficiency and inventiveness
that makes us unique in our Britishness.
And how do you think we managed before
to survive through more than a single World War?
Before the Union we could hold our own -
and now, deal or no deal, we'll be stronger alone.

    1. Yes, indeed, Sue...I will just be relieved when it is all over. You can't turn on the TV without all the arguing...more like children in the playground than mature politicians! Lol
      Many thanks, my dear Friend!

      Love and hugs ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

    1. Yes, dearest Jan...so frustrating.
      The vote goes to the country, and then some dislike the outcome...so they demand another referendum...and then another...and another...
      It is driving me crazy!!!
      Oh you are so kind...my heartfelt thanks.😊😊

      Lots of love and hugs ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

  8. Very wisely written, I was sad about Brexit, I somehow can not believe that UK will not be a part of EU with us all anymore. Hope it will turn out ok for all of the British people.Have a lovely weekend ☺

    1. Thank you so much, Natalia.
      I am not at all sure how it will go...but I just want all the bickering to be over!
      I am certain, though, that we will still be close to our European neighbours after we leave. I hope so anyway. 😊😊

      Have a great day!

  16. Hello Ygraine!
    Our homelands have problems, because to be perfect they would have to be called mothers, not fathers.

  17. my precious fiend i am sorry that i am late (i don't know how) to this wonderful poem
    how finely and poetically you dealt with topic

    it is strange that authorities are taking so much time in decision making
    hope they prefer the will of nation instead their own profits

    much love and hugs dear Ygraine :)
