Poetry – Dead as a Duck

I wrote this for the hapless Theresa May. She threw her lot in with the ERG and went for a hard Brexit instead of looking for a compromise that would have taken a majority with her.

By the time she realised they were a bunch of lunatics it was too late.

They used her and flung her aside. They had what they wanted – the hardest Brexit ever!

Silly May played the wrong hand and lumbered us with the clown Johnson, an extreme Brexit and the most extreme right-wing government we’ve ever had.

Dead as a Duck

They won’t support the vicar’s daughter

Theresa May is dead in the water!

The rabid right with have its way!

On your bike Mrs May!

Unleashing the dogs of Nationalism

Set free the terrors of tribalism.

Cameron and Osbourne put party first

Now the Right for blood does thirst!

They’ve torn the country from bow to stern.

They don’t care and don’t seem to learn.

Mogg and Boris with fight it out!

Power is what it is all about!

Mrs May you chose the wrong way!

Inclusive is best – you threw it away!

Appeasing the nutters was never gonna work!

They made you look like a complete berk!

So Theresa May you’ve had your day!

You’ve thrown the whole country into the fray!

We’re all to hell in a handcart!

Watch as they pull us all apart!

Tory fools what were you thinking?

What mad potions have you been drinking?

It was ideology over common sense!

We’ll all be paying in a lot more than pence!

So long Theresa May!

I can hear the dogs bay.

They’re coming to rip

They’re coming to tear

Mrs May – you’d better beware!

What have you done?

What have you all done?

Stupidity rules

While you’ve been having fun.

The EU was the Achilles heel.

On our future it’s put the seal!

Rosy spectacles and outdated views

Destroying Britain so we all lose.

Opher – 15.11.2018

Every political career ends in failure. We wish for some more than others.

Power is ephemeral. It soon ebbs away.

Some people are so obsessed with power that they would do anything to hang on to it. So much more addictive than any narcotic.

Goodbye Theresa May the rabid limpet.

I'd like to hear from you...
