Theresa May Dances to Abba
I once wrote “I couldn’t imagine
Theresa May hugging one of the Lions”
(as in members of the English football team).
But I’ll take that back because today
she is all over our TV screens
as she comes on stage dancing
to Abba; The Dancing Queen. (Her moves
are much improved upon since her African visit.)
So that Philip gives her a hug. But then,
being her husband, he’s allowed. And it
comes nowhere near dancing through
a wheat field as a child. It’s more than
a dry background shot. It’s the real deal. The lady
who was left with a kettle of worms while Boris
now dances in a field of dry grass; a real pain.
So dance Theresa May, woman
at England’s helm. Has Jacinda,
that laidback young woman from the Colonies,
shown you the laidback/lead-the-way edginess
as we move down the twenty-first century?
With dancing and babies, the women
are bringing reality to politics.
