His oven-ready deal finally defrosted
Will our illustrious leader show more care?
Will this Brexit bollocks now be costed?
Though his preoccupations may reside elsewhere
Will the populist receive his final comeuppance?
His “sunlit uplands” now worth less than tuppence
This resignation event only sits atop
A cascade of cockups this woeful week
The disastrous election in the Shire of Shrop
Was just another pernicious peak
Of the multitude that plague this Covid covered nation
While he seeks to preside above his station
Present public concern revolves around parties
And not even those of the political type
Nor those so praised by Islington arties
Presented as pertaining to philosophical hype
No! Concern is centred on Downing Street workers
Who have shown themselves merely regulation shirkers
Oh, let’s get back to the central question
That has troubled the country for at least fifty years
The answer to which most have their own suggestion
Despite gutter press generated gargantuan fears
Where is the UK’s place in the world –
In Europe or behind some forsaken flag unfurled?
