what did you vote in the Referendum daddy?

What will you tell your children
– that yesterday’s air

which smelled of hope, tolerance
and unity, is now sullied

by scorn and misplaced pride?
That there is no victory –

no return with a golden trophy.
Only a sludgy moon, fading

with the dreams of millions
into a despairing sky.
