Brexit Hot-Pot

  
When Grandma made a cup of tea
she always warmed the chipped old 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.
