Where's My Steak Slice?!!

Funny, isn't it,
How I can't even get a steak slice now?
That's two days in a row,
At Tesco!

I KNOW;
I've heard about the shortages,
H.G.V lorry drivers, leaving the E.U -
(BREXIT),
Not to mention COVID-19 and all that!

You want me to provide the answers,
DON'T YOU?
Well...I wish I could,
But I'm not a politician.

The obvious solution is to reverse,
What was put in place, in the first place -
After all,
There's talk of issuing temporary visas,
To some sweaty European hauliers...
AND WHY NOT!
It's a solution, albeit a temporary one.

That's the trouble, isn't it?
Everything's only ever a temporary fix -
But that's life.
Now...

WHERE'S MY F*CKING STEAK SLICE?!!

(240) In Great Britain lately, the supermarket shelves aren't as fully stacked as perhaps they should be! Regarding the photo, ooh the irony!!! ;-)
