Remainers (Triolet)

Why did today’s word of the day remind me of Brexit? 19 million voted for Brexit and 18 million voted against.

Remainers

The people spoke and some were heard

But some were not and they’re still cross.

Some eighteen million were ignored.

The people spoke; not all were heard.

They will pretend we all concurred.

But some still say, ‘Who speaks for us?’

The people spoke and some were heard

But some were not and they’re still cross.

Some eighteen million were ignored

So forty eight per cent were cross.

The people spoke not all were heard.

For eighteen million were ignored.

And can’t accept what has occurred.

The Brexit vote divided us.

For eighteen million were ignored.

And forty eight per cent are cross.

Where is there now to place a cross

For those who ask, ‘Who speaks for us’

And grieve the referendum lost?

Where is there now to place their cross

For those who feel a sense of loss?

Remainers ask, ‘Who speaks for us?’

And plot where now place to their cross

Their question now, ‘Who speaks for us?’
