Ship Rajoy

by Ian Graham

Mariano, he calls Catalonia:
“¡Hey, Carles, I just had to phone ya!
Cos things ain’t quite clear.
¿You’ve seceded, I hear?
¿Or not? ¿Or not yet?
Well, here’s a safe bet:
If you have, then I’m not gonna let ya.
If you haven’t, I’m gonna forget ya.
Either this stops
Or I sail in the cops.”
