POETRY: Just Pick Your Favourite Colour

It’s one week until polling day in the UK… Here’s a fairly cynical look at voting, in case you needed it!

Just Pick Your Favourite Colour

Polling approaches. A week to the day.
Will you vote blonde, or will you vote grey?
Perhaps you’ll vote orange with plastic earrings,
Or pull your pint purple, if Brexit’s your thing.
For the Nationalists there’s a rainbow of choice,
Yellow, or Green, or Green with no voice.
Whatever you choose,
Wherever you tick,
Whatever your reasons,
Whoever you pick,
We must all remember, at the end of the day,
That what they will do is never what they say.
