‘EU’ DE COLOGNE OR BRUSSEL SPR‘OUT’? (weekly poem)

‘EU’ DE COLOGNE OR BRUSSEL SPR‘OUT’?

David Cameron hopes with the conclusion of his
E.U. deal that he will come up smelling of roses.

The day is won - the deal is done,
Big Dave has pulled it off;
Who else could ‘win’ for the U.K.,
Than Britain’s Eton toff?
With ‘peace for our time’ there will be, (1)
Prosperity for all;
Although the migrants still can breach,
The Bard’s defensive wall. (2)

But we’ll retain our sovereignty,
In all that that may mean;              
The House of Lords, The Carlton Club,
The Stock Exchange, the Queen.
The man on Clapham’s Omnibus,
Will dine at Number Ten;
In the same way he’s always done,
For years since way back when.

Dave’s deal will benefit us all;
His ersatz E.U. Blitz,
Means migrants will get slightly less,
Of our crap Benefits.
The New Jerusalem’s at hand,
Foretold by William Blake;
Where in or out of the E.U.
The few still own the cake!

(1) Neville Chamberlain’s statement made less
than a year before World War Two commenced.

(2) William Shakespeare: Richard 11, Act 2, Scene 1.
Cameron has failed to amend the E.U.’s free movement of labour policies.
