SHIPSHAPE

Enya played

We sailed away


Hablamos en Spanglish

Argentina, Irish

and people from Spain


With a compass from France

And rigging from England

We set out our sails


On European waters we sailed

But BREXIT I fear is coming our way

And without a steady hand at the helm


Captain Cameron resigned

as HMS Ambush made port in Gibraltar

Submarine warfare in the nuclear age


HMS Sabre rattled her way, with flares

to scare Spanish science ships away


BREXIT will be a Titanic success they said

bringing pain back to Belfast once again


Governments of left and right rocked from port to starboard at night as the steady experiences hands had all gone away, sailors retired to Spain


But ship ahoy, BREXIT is on the horizon,

like an iceberg slowly approaching,


We cab still adjust our course,

as my friends and I spoke and joked


from bow to tail, we made our way around the coast of Spain with engine and sail


Build bridges not borders

if we want to weather this storm


Our helm is almost,

out of our hands,

as the rocks fast approach,


we are all in the same boat.
