Brexit, 1.5


Finalist in the doomsday competition

Also rans trail in the wake

Mere mortals dazed in spinning eddies

Diesel, oil and seafoam

All performed and recorded

for future generations entertainment

Grist for documentaries

Like rice and beans for the BBC

Starchy staples put meat on the bone

They find no cure for illusions

and despite their new masters

still perform the old rites

Rule your seas

We’ll piss in the ocean
