Poetry Pleases: November

Marjorie Upson’s poem was inspired by by Margaret Thatcher’s resignation as Prime Minister and leader of the Conservative Party. She also had in mind Thomas Hood‘s poem of the same title.

No warmth
No hope!
New money?
No thanks.
NO. NO. NO.
No confidence
No defeat
New leader?
No change!
Not last
Not first,
Not defeated
RESIGNATION
No woman
New man?
New race
New stakes?
New fight
No result
No contest
No contest
New move
Next door
No change?
NOVEMBER!
