This poem is in response to the EU exit/remain that Britain is facing at this time. If we leave are people prepared to accept that? If we remain will we all work together to make it work? After all, we are all still one country and a democracy whatever the outcome. And top clarify, this coming shame refers to the disrespect of democratic voting.
THE COMING SHAME
If we wake to find a lull –
All the workers left their posts,
And all the voters upset
At the thoughts of friends just lost –
Then who can we have to blame;
It’s our own: this coming shame.
