Trouble at Mill

#SoCs #More

When the ink was dried

and the handshakes made

and the union flag handed back

they thought their troubles were over

Occasional flits across the Sea

brought a change to those

who weeks earlier screamed

they wanted their country back

While those looking after the coinage

Kept it in the nations piggybank

whilst the rest of us wondered

why we kept it there at all

Rich in their seaboats, wondering round

Riley’s life abound

while in the cold and dark around

a poor man’s being crowned

And as they come out of their dream

what the rest see….seems obscene

so they take to the streets – with a verbal attack

for the mirrors and tv’s – don’t answer back
