My children started pre-school on the day they buried Thatcher

My children started pre-school on the day they buried Thatcher
There was free milk for the kids and it was quiet
No-one went on strike
‘Though when Jake took Ellie’s trike
She cried “No mine!”& then tried to start a riot

My children started pre-school on the day they buried Thatcher
A day of happiness & fun for all the babs!
Would be better I suppose
If the ball-pits weren’t still closed
And young Arthur didn’t pick at all his scabs

My children started pre-school on the day they buried Thatcher
The big boat there’s for making play, not war
No task force to send out
And no missiles thrown about
Just Ronnie Ray-gun and a chewed-up apple core

My children started pre-school on the day they buried Thatcher
Rules & regulations had been relaxed
Then “Get in line!” the Nanny stated
And the children there they waited
With low interest rates but minds still over-taxed

My children started pre-school on the day they buried Thatcher
Boys were hugging boys and it was fine
Though Jake was quiet as a mouse
Because he’d bought his dolly-house
With a jelly bean & half a ball of twine

My children started pre-school on the day they buried Thatcher
The quality of mercy was not strained
No buildings caught on fire
And no bombs to raise the ire
Just that naughty boy who wasn’t potty-trained!

My children started pre-school on the day they buried Thatcher
And I wonder what effect she really had
Standing up for independence
Are we all now her descendants?
Teacher went to pick a crony
Saying “That would be my Tony!”
So I asked my darling twins
But all I got was cheeky grins
Then hands held out to go back home with their loving Mum & Dad
