I must be careful what I say
As politics get in the way
Of events that follow thick and fast
Referendum - Catalonian cast...
More transparency, media-led
A wild horse allowed its head
Runs helter-skelter through the crowd
Defiant to the last, unbowed.
Huge challenge at the ballot box
How opportunity now knocks
On hearts and minds in disarray
This thorn in the flesh will stay.
On the sidelines, Europe waits;
Already many multi-States...
The wild horse kicks up clouds of dust
Tensions run high, make or bust?

Referendum held on Sunday 1st October, 2017
