A Second Referendum

‘twould open up a deep rift,
deep, deep as the deepest sea,
and great swathes of sentient beings,
‘twould be swept up into a humungous tidal wave,
ripped apart from Corbyn, for ever more, more, more …

until ….

a great sandstorm would blow in from Europe,
falling, deep, deep, into the deepest rift of Great Britain,
echoes of Mind the Gap fading, fading, fading into the great Earth,

until …

overflowing the sand would drift into the vast seas,
piling up, setting and sealing, as beings walk again – across bridges
to greet their fellow peoples, all shades of skin blending into each other,

until …

strengthened by the colour of sand,
the Earth spins
as one.

Freelance writer and descendant of the cave dweller and outlaw, Humphrey Kynaston. Banished from Shropshire for my eccentricity, I have made my home in Suffolk. I write poetry, short stories, travel journals, comedy gig reviews and non-fiction articles. My wish is to write my way back into the heart of my birth land. All writing commissions (and free holidays in Shropshire!) considered.
