    Default Poetry

    Simon Armitage hurt Brexiteers' feelings when he said he has already produced work, a "film poem", marking the previous Brexit date of March 29, and wasn't planning further Brexit poetry for October 31.


    Sensitive Brexiteers such as the Rees-Mogg siblings and Daily Telegraph readers have risen to the moment, however, by penning some compositions of their own.


    Jacob Rees-Mogg, whose own literary effort on the Victorians sold just 734 copies in its launch week, kicked them off with a jibe at the laureate himself.


    "The Poet Laureate used to be paid in sherry / Which made him decidedly merry / Now he is paid in hard cash / Which makes him awfully slapdash / But when it comes to Brexit he needn't be wary?"

    While his sister, Brexit Party MEP Annunziata Rees-Mogg followed this with a jab at Remainers:


    "The British voted for Brexit / Remainers attempted to wreck it / But Leavers fought on / So soon we'll be gone / As we thrive on outside will they get it?"


    Profound stuff. Not to be outshone, Brexit Party MEP Lance Forman wrote his own ditty:


    "October 31st / Is when we burst / Out of the EU's grip / No ifs. No buts / No backstop cuts / We leave the sinking ship."




    Brexiters being triggered...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    What a load of tulipe, there is only one 'poet'

    Facilis descensus Averno;
    Noctes atque dies patet atri janua Ditis;
    Sed revocare gradum, superasque evadere ad auras,
    Hoc opus, hic labor est
    But I discovered nothing else but depraved, excessive superstition. Pliny the younger
