Deal or No Deal?*

The ballot box opened, The papers all counted, The In-Out debacle not entirely surmounted. The vote of No Confidence, No small coincidence: A not-insignificant sign of displeasure Of all the political few seem to treasure, Standing by proxy for voters’ ideals. A privilege of esoteric appeal, The scene, in the pattern of centuries past. There’s […]

Every Decreasing Circles*

Politics is for the Voters As much as the gloaters, Though, those who did nowt About the ol’ In or Out Really have no grounds to whinge at all, As they witness the nation’s potential Fall. Scenes unfolding of rowdy inglory; The nation awaiting the fate of a Tory. The broader picture marginally more complex, […]

Regretfully they tell us While seeking to compel us To say goodbye to Europe ‘Boo. […]

Perhaps this is progress, Perhaps self-preservation: Whatever the reason, A win-win situation. No more to be said […]
