Thatcher – Ding Dong the…
Those fortunate, have good recalls of her
Those worse off: most likely not
Some people will feel an emptiness
Whilst others think: “We’re well shot…”
Yes, very few public figures
Can cause such opinion-divide
With one hand she took so much from folk
With the other, she did provide
Complicated woman possibly?
Or maybe just single minded
But to the plight of jobless millions
She was definitely blinded
As an infant she took my milk away
As a kid she broke industry to bits
But for the thousands of humble coalmen
Closing the mines was just the pits
The workers from these mines
Now jobless and working class
Were treated as feckless wastrels
And told to “get off yer fekkin’ arse”
In this regard she was unique
And wanted to be the only one:
The only Northern woman M.P.
With a country to be run
Her place as first female P.M.
The unions she did suppress
The Yuppies were utterly ‘rolling in it’
While jobless had homes possessed
Now laid to rest beside Denis
With full military honour
A generous tribute to Maggie T.
Who is finally a goner…
I hope you found time to make your peace first! R.I.P.
