Whether we leave with or without
A deal, in the grand scheme of things
We are here for spit. Like a leaf
Upon a branch, upon a bush.
Come wintertime, it falls.
To be regrown in spring.
Our children might in future
Rejoin. And maybe, not.
We do not know what comes.
We only know what has gone before.
Time, like an arrow, moves
Unerringly, relentlessly, forward.
Fruit flies, inevitably
Like a banana.
Cider is nice.
