That old time democracy…

 

…and in the crossfire
Of ye and nay
The country
Finally had its say
And yet the hopes
And fears of many
Were tossed aside
Like one bad penny.
For if you voted
For to stay
You might just feel
Where was your say
And if you voted
For to go
You’re waiting still
How long, who’d know?

Talks go on
But can’t disguise
MPs have failed
Before our eyes.
And following in
The aftermath
It’s far too serious
To laugh
There’s not a one
Who’s worth our vote
Democracy
It seems — is smote.
