BATLEY AND SPEN

Labour Roller Coaster jumps red wall rails,
Embrace nationalism when all else fails,
Wrap butchers apron around leaders waist,
Shout I’m buying British, I love the taste
Of Melton Mowbray pork pies, Bakewell Tarts,
Jellied eels, Stilton, things that make one fart,
Wear Burberry on the doorstep,
Order pre TV patriotic prep,
Be all things to all, Brexit or remain,
Ride a dozen donkeys, blame left, again.
Claim victory from nigh on disaster,
Demolish red castles ever faster,
More than half electorate stay at home,
Smells like a whiff of fall of ancient Rome.

Harry Rogers In The Red Bedroom, 5th July 2021.
