The Great Mandate

Antonia Sara Zenkevitch

They call this the greatest mandate ever;
even though the results split the UK
in half, more than one union near severed -
they call this the greatest mandate ever
when half the voters go unheard – inferred 
consent through barefaced lies, flagrantly
they call this the greatest mandate ever
even though the results split the UK

they call this the great mandate. “How?” I ask,
when it was founded on fears and deceits,
raising profiles of hate, giving them masks;
they call this the great mandate. How, I ask,
do they ignore the UK’s biggest march
by citing only half a crooked plebiscite* -
they call this the great mandate; “how”, I ask,
when this was founded on fears and deceits.
