The day dawns; Brits abroad awake
Banned from voting - hard to take
The masses on our little Isle
Went “Brexit”- xenophobic-style!
Scots and North Ireland want to stay
Wales and England turn away
Though London's in the camp “Bremain”
No “Great” in Britain – now slow lane...
Screeds on social media sites:
“Gutted”, “Shocked” and “Loss of rights”
The pound slumps to an all-time low
P.M. Cameron, soon must go.
For the E.U. a new future starts
A wave of sovereign States and hearts?
The closer union we enjoyed
Has at a stroke now been destroyed.
Have Britons lost their common sense?
No more sitting on the fence
Obsessed with “faceless” Eurocrat
They've voted out – and that is that!
