What could possibly be more stimulating Than watching your country disintegrating Wondering what course of action is best And whether the outcome be worth all this distress Friends fighting friends; backstabbing the new norm No-one accepting that they’d been misinformed   And whilst people from all sides claim they have the answers Rather than fix […]
