To the gallant Remain

To the gallant ‘remain’ I direct this refrain; to the hearts and great souls I see there; and maintain. That we are not so much different that not all is estranged; We both yearn betterment in so much we are same! I hate not my neighbour; I hate neither you In my heart I am sure it is good you would do! Our wants are quite similar throughout this Brit-ian. To your hearts and great souls, I direct this refrain. To the gallant; to the worthy; resolute, brave, ‘remain’ do we not both; Want better? Do we both not contain respect; and value this country the same? This land welcomed many; Huguenot through to Jew, It stood out for freedom under wings of the few. This all before the time of the present E. U. Look out on your land, on the homeless that call, for better; for direction, Do we not have compassion? I say yes one and all! To the gallant ‘remain’ do we want the same? better for children; for our daughters And sons? Can we do, think and plan? How to be at our best? For I believe that we can. We have seen three depressions whilst still in the ‘club’ Seem lost in a virtual reality; that to many is the rub, When we left the E.R.M. this country did well, it’s all part of your history, That some never tell. Have we not been subject to rumour and spin? Yet it's well known by science in debate; majority knowledge does win. To the gallant to the worthy, resolute, brave ‘remain’. I don't think You unworthy I just put it plain. I don't think that you caved in to fear, Rather that the politics; was rather not clear. You love your own country that’s what I see. I share much of your values, maybe more than you believe So then to you, I state; that for me, it’s so plain Let the UK ‘remain’ undivided by rumour, anger, lies and pain. © Joe Maverick 2-2-2019
