It’s very rare you’ll hear anything remotely political from me, I prefer to listen, observe and cast my vote quietly, with little fuss. However, these are peculiar times. In response to Boris’ “no show” at a press conference yesterday, I felt compelled to write the following, in the hope that it resonates:
Wake up dozing Englishmen
from armchair’d dusty slumber!
Though cricket bats have been oiled and stored,
the orchards are swollen, the flowers in final bloom,
do not rest!
Heed this call to action – trouble is afoot.
A national threat stands before drowsy eyes;
the price of tea will rise!
Wake up and speak out now
before European gates clang shut.
