Great Brexit

You are great! Greater than Great Britain!
You colonized lands after lands
You migrated to foreign lands
Without visas, without permission.

You ruled, ‘civilized' as illegal immigrants
For centuries.
And now you're troubled by immigrants,
You want to cruelly divorce your friends,
Cause something you hate now,
something you loved once:
TO MIGRATE FOREIGN LANDS ILLEGALLY.

Really sets a lonely mood... Well done. -chuck
you know, as i read this, i could almost feel the tone like an undertow in the poem....it is quite remarkable...destitute, but remarkable.
