Europe of the twenty-eight
May soon lose some real estate
Across the Channel trouble brews
«Clause 50» now makes headline news!
Only 52% rejoice
At the outcome of this choice
But what of the other 48?
3 million Scots are still irate...
Over the Border should they vote?
A referendum seems remote
Could the Kingdom split apart
And challenging new problems spark?
Ted Heath brought the Brits on board;
(A move De Gaulle would have deplored
But it seems the General was not wrong!)
A divided Britain is not strong...
A quandary for Theresa May!
Should we go or should we stay?
Waiting makes the problem bigger
Will she, won't she pull the trigger?
