Britain Leaves the EU

There may always be an England but today not in the confines of the EU
Britain voted to leave and other countries may also drop their respective other shoe
Nationalism can run very deep
Control over one’s borders and laws a proud county will want to keep
Unelected bureaucrats in Brussels above any sense of voters’ laws
In Britain exposed the EU’s fatal flaw
Open borders with a flood of Islamists with havoc and Sharia seeking to impose
A time to a proud nation to rise again and its borders control if not close
We pulled the idea of a union off as a union of colonies and then states
But nations with separate languages, histories and customs and past wars face a different fate
This poet has long since given up on reactions to change to predict
 Only that in the short term financial chaos in the markets will on us all inflict
But the EU without England will move forward as will England without the EU
But Brussels bureaucrats removed from the people will suffer when as to the people’s will they are without a clue
