A parliamentary poem about vision and division

This poem delves into the curious language spoken by only one person in the world:

The Speaker of the House of Commons.

The Eyes Have It

The question is: 
Do the eyes have it?
As many as are of that opinion say eye. 
Eye. 
Of the contrary opinion, no. 
No. 

Division. Addition. Subtraction. Multiplication.

The eyes have it.   
So do the noes 
and the ears and the mouth. 
The whole face has it. 

Clear the lobbies. 
Bring up the bodies.
