The New Voters

Mid January – how time flies
And still those misty, chilly skies
With cutting winds that freeze the blood
And puddles, ice-capped pools of mud.

Like mushrooms, roadworks escalate;
Long contraflows and cones dictate
Unending chaos on the roads
As mobility implodes!

More legislation, more constraints
Inevitably – more complaints
Lower pensions, higher tax ...
Dear Brussels cannot hide the cracks!

But hope hides in the bosom still
As elections in October will
Bring «Brit-Belgians» into play
As malgré tout, they choose to stay!

Communal Elections: 14th October, 2018.
