This is one of the jokes I got from my friend. Some others follow:
4. Brexit could be followed by Grexit, Departugal, Italeave, Czechout, Oustria, Finish, Slovakout, Latervia, Byegium. Only Remainia will remain.

TUNE: "The Southern Village"
TITLE: "Spring Sentiments"
A Palindrome Ci
-- by Night Moon Star River
-- Translated by Frank C Yue
Woods are all green in the country-side;
In the warm Sun, searching for scenes fine,
I ramble through the veil misting.
Willow threads, embankment aquamarine
Are washed clean when it's drizzling.
At the Bridge East,
O'er yonder shore are seen
Flying fowls chasing the light breeze.
With deep lament,
Flowers a-falling again.
Silently, with no one else to face,
The Moon hangs in empty space.
Inch by inch, the path serene --
Encroaching by bamboo shadows has been.
Hazily, in the courtyard small,
'Neath blue Doom, oriole serenades all.
(Reading the original ci from the last character backwards)
Tonight, beneath the blue Sky,
Oriole songs lift my heart high;
The small courtyard misting,
Bamboo shadows are invading.
Above the serene path flowery,
Hangs the full Moon silvery.
Quietly and noiseless,
Red petals fall with lament no less.
The soft breeze a-chasing
Away the birds winging;
The distant shore and East Bridge in sight --
They are shrouded by the rains light.
The embankment and willow threads green
Veiled by light mist are faintly seen.
Among green bush and woods in the Sun
I am searching for my Loved One.
