Politics – a high-risk game
Do shuffled cards come out the same?
52 - one for each week
Their positions alter as we speak.
No landslide victory this time round;
«Hung parliament» has a hollow sound
Labour gains across the board
But only one Green card has scored.
The buck stops here, to our disMAY
Who I wonder wins the day?
BREXIT looms in a new form
Will «soft» or «hard» now be the norm?
Many, sleep-deprived, observe
How the PM suffers loss of nerve
The SNP stays out in front
But Wales and N.I. bear the brunt.
No clear-cut mandate as surmised
But is the outcome a surprise?
The Island People spoke their mind
But their ducks are not aligned!
