My friends were already far, but someday I had hoped they'd be here. This was a good country but now all the friends I DID have here are running away as fast as their money and work can carry them.

But I must stay. It isn't logical to go just yet.

You have taken something so valuable from me, in an age where loneliness is an epidemic, where suicides are rising, ever depression consumes the young faster and more sleep efficiently than the black plague ever did.


I was already alone.
You have made it worse.
*******.
******* Brexit. **** everyone who caused it.

Brexit means exit,
Brexit means exit.

It doesn’t mean:
Ignoring the masses who had their say,
Action replaced by incompetence and delay,
Having thirty-nine billion pounds to pay,
Giving our fishing waters away,
Compromising the borders of our precious UK,
Calls to vote again, the Brussels Mafia way,
Hope of a nation reduced to a faltering ray,
Democracy treated as if its had its day.

You promised,
You promised,
To implement what the people decided,
Those promises now watered down,
Refuted and then derided.

But most of all,
But most of all,
Mrs May,
Our vote to Leave,
Was definitely,
Was definitely,
Not a vote to stay!
Ya Know I ... HARDLY ...
Choose to ... PARTY ...
Because of THOSE Parties ...
Who DON'T Act ... Smartly ...

So Party ... DARKLY ...
Instead of ... " Calmly " ...

cos' You Can ... Party HARD ...
WITHOUT ... Drawing Cards ...
or ... Drawing GUNS ...
To PROVE Your ... " TOUGH " ... ?!?

Leave THAT Stuff ...
To The ... MILITARY Son ... !!!

And Parties ... Who ...
USE Feds' Like ... TOOLS ... !!!

BELIEVE ...
I'm NO Fool ... !!!

So am part of ... NO PARTY ...
Whose Moves ... Divide Parties ... !?!

So NO ... " Party Politickin' " ...
With Parties Who Be ... TRICKIN' ...
and Robbing More Than ... " Giving " ...
Because of Their ... MISGIVINGS ... !!!!!!!!!!!

These Days ...
Parties ... DON'T LISTEN ... !!!
and CERTAINLY ... DON'T Glisten ... !!!

Or ...
Try to ... FULFIL Visions ...
They USE To Get ... " Positions " ... !!!

That Then Create ... DIVISIONS ... !!!!!!!

Because Their Visions ... MISSION ...
Appears Like ... " Apparitions " ...

YES I Said ... APPARITIONS ... !!!!!!!!!!

Or What's called YES ... " Mirages " ...
That PROVE That They Are ... HEARTLESS ...
and Merely Are The ... " Charges " ...
of Those Who Move In ... " DARKNESS " ... !!!!!

Parties Who ... Lead ...
To Feed Like Breeds ...
of ... DEVIOUS FIENDS ... !!!

VAMPIRIC Like ... " Ticks " ... !!!
Whose Party ... TRICKS ...
AREN'T Built To ... FIX ... !!!

The Enlist ... DUD Scripts ...
and SYSTEMIC ... " Eugenics " ... !!!

They're ACTUALLY ... PATHETIC ...
and Sadly ... Quite ENDEMIC ... !!!!!

Parties ... INAUTHENTIC ...
Now FILLED With ... "Euro SKEPTICS" ... !?!

TWICE In A ... WEEK ...
Their Parties ... SPEECH ...
Has Made Them SEEK ................................

A Place AWAY From ...................................................... EURO Peeps' ...
But CLEARLY NOT ... Their MONEY ... ?!!!?

These Brits Are ... TRULY FUNNY ...
Aren't They ... " European " ... ?!?

Their ATTITUDES ...
KEEP Leaking ...

So now Some Feel ...
They're ... " weakened " ...
Because The ... Party's OVER ...
cos' Icelanders ... Were COLDER ...
Than Brexit' ... British Voters ... !!!!!!

Hodgson ...
Resigned SO FAST ...
That BOLT Said ...

"Kiss me rass !
Them English Man lack class,
and play ball with no heart !
So yes them should depart,
cos' man dem' stink like **** !"

Sometime ...
You've GOTTA LAUGH ...
and Party With ... The SMART ...
Who Choose To ... Party HARD ...

But NEVER With ... " weak hearts " ... !!!!!

My Party Vibes Are FINE ...
When writing down ...
THESE RHYMES ...

That Speak About The Times ...
Current FILLED Like Lines ...
ELECTRIFIED ... That SHINE ...
and Move You Like ... Bass Lines ...
READY For ... " PARTY VIBES " ... !!!!!!

I'm At ... An Age ...
Where I Now RAGE ...
In DIFFERENT Ways ...

AGAINST The Machine ...
That Does NOT CLEAN ... !!!

By Putting Thoughts ...
From My Head To ... Page ...

And THIS KEEPS ...
My Vibe ... HEARTY ...
and Seems To Be ...
Why I ... NOW SEE ...

My Choice of Being ...

..... " Arty " .....

As My NEW Way To ...

.... " PARTY " ....
So, with Theresa Mays Historical, 230 Vote Loss in Parliament, over her Brexit Deal ! This poem, even though written, basically immediately after the Original Referendum, still holds relevance !

I think the world is ending
and I really wish I didn’t.
There’s a rat under the floorboards
and a knife inside the kitchen,
and in the alley by the bins
a man there ******.

For the streets all smell of *****,
and this ******* indecision
has us riddled
in the middle
of our end and our beginning.

In the town a politician
with a jet black tongue
licks the seal on our decisions
without every truly listening
to anyone.
well done, Britain x
Sara Kellie May 2018
Leave my Nan out in the rain, it'll be right.
She's having veg later with some meat, on a bone but meat.
No gravy, she's too lazy. She will not thread it.

So what do you think? Shall we fold it the other way?
Do it tonight, it won't be today and not quite black but definitely not grey.

If it smells like cheese, just wear one and keep one eye open!
Then, we may even finish third.
Remember, listen for the sound.
It's crucial, like a twenty pence piece.

Dust! Always dust. Grams and ounces of the dustiest dust.
Never before six and never after six.
Just continuous with no bends, bubbles or any of that material you really like.

Because when he'd finished speaking (The Italian) I didn't understand a ******* word of it!

"Sorry, I don't speak Italian", shrugged my shoulders, did that thing you do with your bottom lip and ****** off.

THE END
(FINITO)
A poem describing the problems we encounter through language barriers.
The solutions we create to overcome them!
Especially the English
Chris Neilson Nov 2018
I'm a clean healthy living bloke
I don't drink and I don't smoke
consuming my quota of 5 a day
fruit and veg are here to stay

I've got serious health issues you see
I've been unwell, between you and me
but I still play the hand I'm dealt
whether standing, sitting or even knelt

No woe is me or sympathy sought
against many misfortunes I've fought
I owe it to those who love me dearly
cheerily supportive when I'm weary

They suggest I write in a rhyming style
to lift the reader and let them smile
life's departure lounge has many exits
don't leave them still talking about brexit
Paul Butters Nov 2018
Remoaners to the left, Brextremists to the right,
Theresa “Maggie” May has an uphill fight.
I can’t see her lasting many more days,
Unless she changes her stubborn ways.

Theresa is an immovable object.
Her hubby must be totally henpecked.
Trying to please just everyone,
Annoying all is what she’s done.

Right now she is UK Prime Minister,
But her own back benchers are getting sinister.
Some say she’s sold us down the river,
A thing for which they can’t forgive her.

Others claim she’s gone too far,
As we should stay just where we are.
Some see Europe as our friend,
But others say the UK we must defend.

Ireland is a sticking point
A thing that’s gonna rock the joint.
They don’t know where to put the border,
Without causing grief and disorder.

What an impasse, feels like stalemate,
Are we heading to be a ***** state?
Who knows what’s going to happen next?
No wonder we are all perplexed.

Topical... I took the word "Brextremist" from Labout MP Angela Eagle who used it in the commons this week.
