So farewell then, #MichaelGove with thanks to E J Thribb

A grey, humid Tuesday morning in the Midlands; it could be pathetic fallacy all over again. I want to keep the impetus to write going, but so far, I’ve just watched Homes under the Hammer and repeats of Frasier. And then I heard that Michael Gove has been replaced as Education Secretary. The clouds lifted, the sun beamed at me and my  mood soared. You see, even in the darkest hours, there can be hope- and if Gove is gone, what else might be achieved, not least by me!


So farewell then, Michael Gove

It’s end of term.

You were not a teacher.


You took us back

to our childhoods

to Dickens and Pope

wooden desks and inkwells


You knew what you liked.

Glad to say

your last report
