Should they go or should they stay?
The world is falling to pieces
Like these biscuits that are broken
And the promises that politicians have spoken
Tribal drums are beating
Leaving populations seething.
The rush for globalisation
Has produced more fragmentation.
In Majorca and Venice
They protest against tourism’s menace.
Tear gas and rubber bullets in the blazing sun
Are not the way to prevent a referendum.
The voice of the Kurds is still not heard
Although their cause is not absurd.
Myanmar is in a state
As Rohingya Moslems flee their fate.
Nationalism may be a blessing or a curse
But violence only makes things worse.
The last of last week’s broken biscuits
Helped us make this verse.
Biscuits: The last of the Box of Broken Biscuits
