An island keen to float
Floundering out on its own
Soon to run off from its friends
And quietly
To go and make its bed

Keen to run until the last
With its head firm under sand
To raise itself above the rest
To stand up tall
And beat its chest

Trace the roots beyond the sea
Stoking vitriol
What stood the test of time
Anger unstemmed
An epoch marred by discontent

When you can't placate
An anxious mass
Of angry people
They'll turn their backs
And out come words
With malicious intent
Blame some foreign force instead
