Poetry – OXY MORON


Democracy means not voting.

A better future means making it worse.

Tackling problems means creating bigger problems.

Expanding trade means shrinking it.

Protesting lack of investment by shrinking the economy.

Taking control by giving up control.

Brexit is an oxymoron.

Nothing much about Brexit makes sense to me. I can’t see how ducking out of governing but still being subject to their rules makes any sense. I can’t how protesting the lack of investment and doing something that shrinks the economy makes any sense. I can’t see how stopping immigration from one place and replacing it with people from further away solves anything.

Most of all I can’t see how stopping people voting is defending democracy.

Brexit is an oxymoron.
