Shapeshifters of the world

Margaret Hilda Thatcher

  1. Madam Miaow wrote this one:

    Thatcher is dead

    Margaret Thatcher died at the Ritz.
    It fits.
    Her blitz on the poor
    National assets thrust in the mitts
    of corporate bandits.
    Wealth trickled-down like a horse shits
    undigested grain for birds that flit
    round what its rear end emits.
    Compassion paucity, dried out tits,
    the country in bits and run by greedy gits.
    Her fans omit the human price
    of the crimes her class commit.
    Her legacy is the pits.
    And she closed them as well.


  2. Well that is a lovely pome! Who is Madam Miaow? I don't know who she is. Is she you? x
