 ramblings and things

Post Brexit Speculation

One third of the electorate
Voted for Offshore Isolation
Leading to a strange
Economic Situation.
Finally Brexit Bankruptcy
Brought the passage of The Act
Making American Statehood
Finally a world accepted fact,

A process so gradual
Very few had noticed change
Except the whole planet now
Came into guided missile range.
And the Hangers and the Floggers
At last got their way
And every other Wednesday
Became State Execution Day.

They absorbed the Happy Juice
Slowly over the Tuesday night
So with the coming of the dawn
Each condemned, high as a kite
Went Chatting and laughing gayly
On their final ride
Not so much execution as
Each committing suicide.

(The Human Rights Movement
Having insisted on this situation
Little Britain  long being known
As a most humanitarian nation.)
Then came the contract
For, of course, a suitable fee
As Executioner to the World
For this Land of the Free.

They had to build a new runway
Just to cope with the flights
Flying in the condemned
Alternative Tuesday nights.
And, Of course Old Glory
Replaced the Union Jack
Such a small price to pay
To Get Your Country Back.

The rich just got richer
The poor just plodded on
As in the eyes of the World
All International status gone,
And nostalgia grew for when
We used to have a world say.
Before Britain just became
Most Distant State, U. S. Of A.
