An Epitaph for Remainers . . .


They tried,
and tried,
to war against stupidity,
to turn the tide,
that dreadful tide,
of evil and dishonesty.

The Government lied
and turned aside
from decency and probity
to power and cupidity,
an rumour and venality.

As evil won,
and day was done,
the victor was mortality.
No one cried
or turned aside
to mourn
lost virtue and integrity.

The few that sighed
were pushed aside,
and weeping died,
at peace abide
safe in St Cuthbert’s cemetery.
Laid to rest
their future blest.

Remember them,
