Droplets of Verse: ‘The Sick Man of Europe’

THE SICK MAN OF EUROPE
The sick man of Europe
Can’t hold it together
Borders are bulging
Trade winds and bad weather

The single currency
Is a drunken clog dance
Blocked up arteries
The cafe bar of last chance

Accumulated debt
The virus of empty pockets
Goggles are misted up
Steam from hot, stale croissants

Slicing the sausage
Much too thickly
Bureaucrats sharpen knives
Surgery for the terminally sickly

Some make a profit
Have healthy accounts
Others turn shades of green
Their share prices bounce

The blossoming far right
Display a healthy glow
They feed on apartheid
Show a thirst for stemming the flow
