The Brusselo

BrusseloLove this illustration from Axel Scheffler, the illustrator behind the Gruffalo, for the Guardian, to demonstrate his support for Britain remaining in the EU. It gave me a little idea ๐Ÿ™‚

………………………………………………………………………..
Vote Leave took a stroll through a deep dark wood.
They saw the olden days and they thought they looked good.

They forgot that we needed the EU for trade.
They forgot all the good stuff our membership made.

โ€œThe EU is evil, we have to get OUT OUT OUT!”
(forgetting without it we donโ€™t have much clout!)

They got all in a tizz, and with Farage as sponsor
And Boris the leader, they created a monster.

โ€œOh help! Oh no! Itโ€™s a Brusselo!โ€

It had terrible teeth, and its skin was all funny.
It had big hairy hands to grab all of our money.

On the end of its fingers were terrible claws,
Which held pen and paper for rewriting our laws.

โ€œThe Brusselo floods borders, leaves open the gate!
He chucks out bananas for being too straightโ€

Silly old things, donโ€™t they know?
Thereโ€™s no such thing as a Brusselo!

A mouse took a stroll through the wind and the rain,
And then with a smile, he voted remain.
