The end came and

Went with a whimper

Reason outweighed even hope

What we thought wasn’t

And what we had

Didn’t and wouldn’t be

And so like gentlemen

Pushing away from the

Table with cognac cigars

And negotiations we began

To divvy up the

Spoils of loves war

Setting new borders new

Expectations and new policies

And how now we

Will address those remaining

To live in a

Country now called Ex
