My little Euro Sonnet…

And now at last the fight begins
We have the Outs, we have the Ins
But tell me please, we need to know
Should we stay or should we go.
The argument for staying in
Is sometimes lies and often thin
But then the one for coming out
Is often led by racist shout.

The trouble is they changed the rules
And treated citizens just like fools
The Common Market go ahead
Is not quite what stands in its stead
The people signed for trade back then
So much has changed by stroke of pen.
