Ode to Lisa (and other supposedly progressive MP’s tempted by Brexit Deals)

Oh Lisa I’ve heard and seen your Bexit agonies on TV many a time
but being progressive means Brexit should be a straight NO every time

Being a progressive means rejecting making the poor poorer
but you know Brexit in any form will make the poor poorer

Being a progressive means standing up for your constituents jobs
but Brexit will mean the loss of some of your constituents jobs

Being a progressive means promoting workers rights
but Brexit as you know will reduce workers rights

Being a progressive means going and being green for future generations
but Brexit will undermine environmental protections for those generations

Being progressive means putting ever greater resources into the NHS
but Brexit will reduce the money from taxes available for the NHS

Your constituents voted to Leave the EU amidst many lies they were told
but they didn’t vote for what’s on offer now – you know that you’ve been told

Your progressive even socialist seat in the HoC may well be important to you
but backing a regressive Brexit will mean that folks won’t fondly remember you

So please remember you’re a progressive who should oppose any Brexit Deal
you should be explaining to your constituents why you reject Johnson’s Deal

Oh Lisa I’ve heard and seen your Bexit agonies on TV many a time
but being progressive means Brexit should be a straight NO every time
