LETTER: ‘A plea from the EU leaders’

Ode to Brexit

Please do not leave us, dear Dave,

We always said you should stay

But never intended giving away

Anything special to make you behave.

You’ve tried to be so very bold

Now tell your people whatever you wish

To try to save them from future anguish

Just go away and do as you’re told.

The voters won’t know we’ve given you nowt

When you tell them it’s right to ‘stay in’

So feed them with fear and tales of spin

But never say they should vote to ‘get out’.

You can’t threaten us with your legal scheme

To change all the ways we will rule

Thinking this is being a fool

It’s our courts alone who will be supreme.

You moan about migrants and border control

You complain what we do in Greece

We wish your protesting would cease

We will dictate how to get out of this hole.

And now you dislike our Turkey deal

That may solve the problem for all

Unless you start another big brawl

And protest with your endless squeal.

We told you we need you, dear Dave,

And certainly need your money

(Though your rebates ain’t so funny)

Just learn to obey and behave.

M Harris
