The British Revolution

 

 

Thick fog was falling slowly on Big Ben

one very cold November night at ten,

and Parliament still standing tall and proud

was vanishing behind a watery shroud.

A spooky stillness hovered in the air

and filled the dimly lit, deserted square.

 

. . .

the honourable members of this House

had once again relapsed into a drowse,

when suddenly a bunch of eager whips

appeared with vulgar phrases on their lips.

 

. . .

They kept the House of Commons on its course 

to bring the Maastricht Treaty into force.

. . .

 

The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince Philip and Queen Mum

and other royal VIPs had come

to join the honest people of this land

that soon this Euro-nonsense should be banned!

. . .
