Frank Poems: BREXITALIA

The European Movement

A VILLAIN KNELL

(2021, with apologies)

Do not go gentle into Brexit shite!
Just look at how they’ve fucked up the UK!
Rage, rage against the lying of the Right!

Leave voters should have known it wasn’t right.
Instead they heeded Brexiteers as they
Lied to them loudly about this Brexit shite.

Remainers didn’t go without a fight:
They fought, campaigned, protested every day,
Raging against the dying of the light

But Murdoch, Johnson, Farage and the Right
Spread zenophobia and fear down Brexit Way,
Luring voters to bid the EU good night.

Old Remainers, like me, with fading sight
Can see we’re stuffed until our dying day,
So rage against the lying of the Right!

Curses on the villains who’ve caused our plight!
May bells ring out for Europe, let us pray!
Let’s not go gentle into Brexit shite!
Rage, rage against the lying of the Right!

The dead don’t come back.
The living don’t want to leave.
Brexit’s total crap.

Mogg, Jacob Rees,
Minister for the 17th and 18th Centuries,
said floccinaucinihilipilification

and was thought very witty.

More’s the pity.

UNELECTED BUREAUTWAT

Little Lord Frost was awfully cross
on account of the contract for NI.
He’d have been even crosser
if he hadn’t forgot he’d agreed to the lot
and had vowed it was better than any.

BREXIT MEANS

Sunderland Echo, 25 June 2016: "How Sunderland's Brexit count rocked the world…"

In Twenty Sixteen
victory for the Brexiteers!!

But Brexit meant Brexshit.
It all turned to tears¡¡

Brexit means Brexit,
but I resign, for Boris,
really means Remain.
