Britain looks back to its former glory
Revising history and dreams of epochs new
Excluding friends and mistaking foes
Xenophobes moaning about empty nursing stations
Isolated, insular and dreaming still of money power
Trading, trashing, cashing in and cashing out.
Brave New Britain, breaks with bureaucrats
Racing outward and razing the bonds of Brussels
Escaping chains and euro notes and promises
eXiting the strangling weight of unknown faces
Illuminating the new world with influential freedom
Transforming trade for all our world
Blind and bothered, we are ashamed,
reviewing backward brave or silly votes
Entreating others to show the way
eXpecting leaders to know what’s what
Intelligence absent across the plot!
Tell us, pray, when? where? and what?
