£10 million for this?

Roses are red
Maggie was blue
now she is dead
they’re having a do.
They’re airbrushing history
re-writing the past
Big Ben’s falling silent
the flag’s at half mast.
In a time of austerity
they’ve money to burn
for the pomp of her funeral
but the lesson we’ve learned
is they secretly know
she’s not loved by the nation
her grave wouldn’t be safe
so they plumped for cremation.
Steve Pottinger. April 17 2013.
