Limbo

limbo limbo
limbo like me
we’ll  dance to your tune
at your limbo party.

you tell me dance 
I bend even lower
you tell me dance
’til I know your power.

limbo limbo 
limbo like me
what can  I do
to rise and break free.

the drum sounds
I meet the ground
your voice is the beat
that repeats and repeats

no pause in the flow
no chance now to show
that I need you to listen
there are other opinions

limbo limbo
limbo like me
drum is still beating
I’m down on my knees

it’s all part of your game
to make me insane
you tell me leave
I’ll tell you remain.

(A tribute to the famous slavery poem.
I realise now it reflects my frustration about Brexit!)
