Maggie Thatcher – Your favourite poem

 

margaret thatcherxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 

She was known as the Iron Lady
a name she liked to revel in
as she was a strong and forthright leader
three elections she went on to win.
But she wasn’t liked by all
and the Miners despise her name
she upset the Unions as well
so like the Pit Men their hatred is the same.
Yet she survived a bomb in Brighton
and sent our troops off to war
she wouldn’t let the Argies have the Falklands
and their soldiers surrended by the score.
She’s now getting a funeral fit for a Queen
the like not seen since Churchills in Sixty Five
Statesmen from around the world are attending
as it’s shown on our televisions live.
Personally I never really liked her
as at times she appeared to have no heart
yet I did admire her strength of conviction
but I’ll never forget how she tore my City apart.

The Life That I have – Your favourite poem

lovexxxxxxxxxxxxxx

The life that I have 
Is all that I have 
And the life that I have 
Is yours 

The love that I have
Of the life that I have 
Is yours and yours and yours. 

A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have 
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years 
In the long green grass 
Will be yours and yours and yours.
