From the comments:
After the Referendum of the 23rd June
The President of the European Parliament
Wrote a comment on Twitter
Stating that the British people
Had violated the Rules
And could redeem themselves only
By accepting that they could not decide their fate.
Would it not be easier in that case
For the Commission to eject the United Kingdom
And find some people who would do what they’re told?
apologies to B. Brecht.
Any other versions? And to be inclusive about it, any decent limericks, clerihews or other pastiches? There’s probably something that can be done with the Lear speech, I know not what etc, maybe the let slip the dogs of war?
