Brexit Hot-Pot (a Tillanelle)

 
When Grandma made a cup of tea † †
she always warmed the old chipped pot † †
then poured the water boiling hot † †
† †  
when cannibals cooked the missionary † †
they lit a fire beneath the pot † †
and boiled their dinner piping hot † †
† †  
when papers failed the citizenry † †
as truth in news went all to pot † †
the page-3 girls were extra hot † †
† †  
when hippies live their own decree † †
drop out the system, smoke some pot † †
they find their lifestyle cool and hot † †
† †  
when bombs are dropped upon the free † †
the infrastructure shot to pot † †
the war-talk pumps the people hot † †
† †  
when rulers disconnect, donít see † †
instead of cooling things a lot † †
they 'Brexit' people into shock † †
then pour more water, boiling hot.
