As a Brit, I feel I must speak out
What is this “Brexit” all about?
Our PM must with caution tread
We Ex-pats know our minds; we're led
By the freedom and the quirky style
Of Brussels – how it makes us smile
With its multi-culti ways and means
“Système D” - the stuff of dreams.
It's quaint and picturesque and smart;
Has an idiosyncratic heart
Its beer and chocolate every time
Are, let's admit it, quite divine!
OK, mobility's a pain
But trams and buses take the strain
There are parks and gardens when it's fine
And what a place to wine and dine!
In terms of weather, it's the same
But the wealth of culture makes it plain
Brits help to make the Union strong
31,000 Ex-pats can't be wrong!
