Brexit Blues – A poem about the rise of populism.

Brexit Blues

 

I’ve got the Brexit Blues

And the Trump grump

Being fed the toxic news

By the great orange chump.

 

Divide and rule

The faithful get their dues.

Dismantle all that’s good

The victors get to choose.

 

Billions gone

At the stroke of a pen

Through the caustic lies

Of power-mad men.

 

I’ve got the Brexit Blues

And the Trump grump

Being fed the toxic news

By the great orange chump.

 

Opher 23.6.2018

 

 

We’ve been led up the garden path by power-mad men who have duped us with their lies.

They work on fear and hate, target certain groups – immigrants and Muslims this time – and create division.

Their actions will cost us dear. Already Brexit has cost us billions. It will make us all the poorer.

This is the face of the new populist fascism.

 

 

I'd like to hear from you...
