The Big Decision: Britain Leaves EU

Today in Sweden, parties;

Midsummer solstice has been reached.

In England’s Stor Brittania* (Great Britain)

Union has been breached –

The vote: to leave a Europe’s huge and first attempt

To make a Europe one.

Now it’s done!

Great Britain is the first to leave,

Reminding one of Union

And Confederate:

The US Civil War.

What more?

We don’t know what will follow.

Will  the morrow turn to their advantage?

From the vantage point of Sweden,

Whose dependency is export,

It may be for the worse.

For all the rest, a blessing or a curse

Is yet to see.

Meanwhile, it’s for the likes of me

To write, describe and not project.

The project European Union

Will, in every likelihood,

Go on.

For my part I’m opinion-free.

Now on to my own party.
