It seems the outs want in;
that they thought a vote to leave 
would have no impact.

They thought they’d pencil in a cross
and still remain.
That someone else would protect 
their status quo. That someone else
would protect the life they know.

And more than that. 
It seems they did not understand
what it was that kept them safe.

Only now do they ask, 
Dr Google tell me what it is that I’ve lost ?
Tell me what it is that I’ve so lightly 
thrown away.
