In Memoriam: Margaret Thatcher
Share
clear

So Farewell, then, Margaret
Thatcher.  No
Glass ceiling for you. More of a
Grass roof.  No u-turns
That was your
Catch phrase. But now it’s
Your turn
I come to bury Thatcher and to
Praise her. No cremation mind
The Lady’s not for burning 

© E. J. Throbb, aged 17¾

That's No Iron Lady....
- That's My Wife
 
 
With rue my heart is laden,
Impressed with Iron Maiden*
 
On Pressing Matters of State,
AE Househusband
