Brexit, as told through Hamilton lyrics
Because the sheer irony was too good an opportunity to pass up.
“What comes next? You’ve been ‘freed’
Do you know how hard it is to lead?
You’re on your own. Awesome. Wow.
Do you have a clue what happens now?
Oceans rise, empires fall
it’s much harder when it’s all your call
All alone, across the sea [well, channel]
When your people say they hate you,
don’t come crawling back to me”
–THE EU. (But, you know, also King George III, representing the British Empire)
