We must look to find out what it is we lack

There is a serious earthquake in our land
From cyber crime to fire  or wild attacks
The tremor ‘s  greater than we understand

No more may we keep our  thick heads in the sand
We must look to find out what it is we lack
There is a serious earthquake in our land

No fairy queen can wave a magic wand
If the outlook’s really nighttime black
The tremor ‘s  greater than we understand

We assume the government has plans
But now we see they’re vying to be sacked
There is a serious earthquake in our land

The uncertain note of terror’s underlined.
Theresa May pretends she’s voted back
The tremor ‘s  greater than we understand

Where shall we observe the first bleak crack,
For it may lie way off the beaten track?
There is a serious earthquake in our land
The tremor ‘s  greater than we understand
