Margaret Thatcher Has Died – Aged 87

Margaret Thatcher was Prime Minister when I was born
And on hearing of her death, the country seems to be torn
Between those have respect for an old lady’s passing
And those who are joyous, and scathingly, almost laughing.

For someone who’s been out of power for over twenty years
It seems somewhat callous for her death to be met with cheers.
Political issues naturally cause quite a lot of debate
But after a stroke, aged 87, I feel she doesn’t deserve the hate.

This lady took the top job, in a body made by men;
She’s a significant historical figure, and we’ll never see her like again.
You don’t have to respect the politics, you don’t even have to care
But if you have nothing nice to say, it’s more respectful not to share.

So my condolences to her family, at this most saddening hour.
Baroness Thatcher showed that girls don’t have to be afraid of power.
We can step up and have opinions, and even run the country too;
This lady wasn’t for turning, and she just did what she had to do.
