Opportunity to ride on coat tails,
Taken by bleaters who blow with the wind.
Not the vile murder made them change their minds,
Afore common vigil, all set to abstain.
Now that the people rise up in protest,
Not enough to say they didn’t vote for,
Behind gritted teeth they must vote against.
Such a dilemma, oh what a to do,
In the circus impossible to ride,
Two horses split, no longer side by side,
Forced to choose. To the left or to the right?
In Mandelsons coop chickens are spinning,
Watch them spit feathers, conundrum revealed,
Brave women have spoken upon Clapham Fields.
