2021 - A Brave New Year

Happy Brave New Year
We're no longer of the EU
And if you go visit Europe
Join the correct re-entry queue
Don't forget your travel insurance
Medical treatment's no longer free
Boris has promised to fix it-
We'll just have to wait and see.

Just remember when you visit
There's a maximum of ninety days
Otherwise you'll need a Visa
If you're planning longer stays.
You'll need to check your passport
It's essential that you do
Less than six months to run
I'm afraid you'll have to renew..

Sad about the Emmaeus Project
Where entry was guaranteed
You'll just have to study at home
If it's qualifications that you need.
They may not be accepted if
You want to work over there
But we've got our country back
So do we really need to care.

Think of the compensation if
It's medical treatment you seek
Remember all those extra billions
Promised to the NHS each week
We've got rid of the EU membership
It seems one of our pet hates
But don't worry chaps because
We'll soon join the United States.

We'll become an offshore sweatshop
The Taiwan of the Civilised West
But by Jove remember we're British
we all know that British is best
And if on your curtailed travels
You see contemptuous sneering blokes
One of the price of our freedom is
Being one of the world's bad jokes.
