Brexit Song by Monika Kostera

I am not a silent poet

I don’t answer that question
I say: I’m from Sheffield
It’s as close to the truth
as nothing these days

I am a walrus
I eat pierogi
I’ve been to Baker street
in a submarine

My mother looked lovely
in her light Biba dresses
She liked pierogi
She dreamed of gardens
green hills

I’ve come
from the land
of ice and snow
I watch raindrops fall
as right as
back then

I won’t answer that question
You can’t fool the children
Will we ever walk
the mountains
the hills

Do widzenia, do jutra!
