In Memoriam: Baroness Thatcher

The bitch is dead, her glories not yet past:
The unions and the welfare state destroyed!
Riot and war, three million unemployed!
The Iron Lady's rusted out at last;
Yet it would be quite wrong to celebrate
The death of Britain's boorish Poujadette;
Instead we should express profound regret
That it has happened some decades too late.

She is not gone, alas; her ghost is there
To hector when the poor are being kicked,
Or nod approval at a migrant scare
While City rumps continue to be licked.
We have her yet; just look around and see
Her pitiless and ugly legacy.
