: Come, idiots

Now is not the time to be misguided 

To hesitate amongst the undecided


Place your cross where crosses go 

Or simply tick if you prefer but know 

A Vote to Leave will take you back 

Where kittens are drowned in a sack


Where puppy dogs are boiled alive 

And two plus two determines five 

Where Tories add the sum of fear 

Say long is short and far is near


So come you idiots, vote to stay 

The rich will fuck you either way
