Honda absence makes the fart grow*

There is an old firm from Japan/
Whose Swindon plant faces the can;/
The exit of Honda/
Leaves Britain to ponder/
The shit that is hitting the fan.///

*The headline comes from the old saying ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’, by way of a marginally less old joke about a flatulent Kawasaki salesman whose absinthe habit causes him inadvertently to promote a competing brand. Move the first word of my headline to the end and change ‘grow’ to ‘go’, and you have the punchline.
