November 9, 2019 Authors & Reviews, Books Comments Off on Brexit Poetry: THE BIG DEBATE

Henry Normal, co-writer of award-winning TV and film shows such as The Royle Family, The Mrs Merton Show, The Parole Officer, Coogan’s Run, Paul Calf, and producer of Gavin and Stacey, Moone Boy, Uncle and Alan Partridge, among many others, has written four Brexit-themed poems exclusively for Northern Soul. They are called Brexit Trilogy (taking into account inflation). Here’s the fourth one. 

THE BIG DEBATE
 
Out 
 
or 
 
In
 
You can’t win 
 
but then ag’in
 
You can’t lose
 
Wear your shirt
 
as you choose
 
In 
 
or 
 
Out
 
no need to shout
 
it’s up to you
 
with a brew
 
you might want to 
 
let it stew
 
So
 
when reviewin’ 
 
the ins 
 
and outs
 
begin by bein’ 
 
in no doubt
 
what you’re gobbin’
 
on about
 

Henry Normal will be at The Lowry in Salford on January 25, 2020. For more information, click here
