Nancy Astor: another statue to fling in the sea

Pic: Nancy Astor’s statue in Plymouth, with the poet demonstrating her view

Nancy Astor
in fancy plaster
in copper not in alabaster

Why would you choose
to kiss the shoes
of a Tory snob who hated Jews?

I hope it’s downed,
dragged on the ground
and tossed head-first in Plymouth Sound
