There was once a place called the UK That voted to leave and not stay The government lied One great nation died They'd thrown their whole future away
First we look at the campaign Terrible both leave and remain Great lies on both sides The country divides My goodness are we going insane?
So let us ask the population Oh we all hate immigration The economy's bad We're feeling quite sad So we'll rip a great whole in this nation
How can we make a decision When there's clearly a deep incision Why change all our ways When after a couple of days There's such a great whopping division?
We can all vote, young and old A value we should all uphold But it's not democratic When the campaign's erratic And lies are all that we're told
One thing that I find quite sinister This new unelected Prime Minister Equality's great And I don't want to hate But why is she the one to administer?
I must make it clear what I mean Don't think what I'm saying's obscene But you cry for democracy Oh the hypocrisy! Clearly you're not all that keen
And maybe we'll all be alright It won't all change overnight But I'm European And if you're disagreein' Then I swear I won't give up the fight
Limericks are almost inherently funny. There's something about the rhythm that makes them feel jolly. With that in mind, I decided to write an extended limerick about a topic which, for me, is not funny.
