The Numbers

Mutually Assured Destruction
is the deal,
but that infers an agreement,

with a ‘letter of last resort’, a waiver,
for silent-running replacement subs

to work to the end-of-life,
at the cost of forty billion pounds,

and the loss of eight billion people,
to keep fifteen thousand jobs,

in Scotland, which has voted
for the loss, but not the deaths.
