Landlocked (For Verve Poetry)

We've left the EU

We're landlocked

Racist comments are closed off with "Brexit"

I want to tell everyone racism isn't born overnight,

they just went from the outer to the inner when EU locked our land.

Best believe we ain't taking our scarves off, or bleaching our skin

This city is mine and yours, like it or not.
