Some describe you as a ‘hard head’
But we know you’re far from heart dead.
This week, Julia, you’ve clearly shown
Such genuine grief, all doubts have flown.
You’re forthright, strong and no fibber,
Stand-out model for any Libber.
Throughout your career; from the start,
You’ve never been a bleeding heart.
But, intelligent and aware,
Conflicts you’ve resolved with flair.
Questions on why you’re not married
Laughingly you’ve always parried.
Which echoes another ‘Welsh’ red head
Who resolutely refused to wed.
You know, that ‘weak and feeble woman
With heart and stomach of’……oops!……a human?
Julia, you may not be a Tudor, born to rule,
But you surely come from that gene pool.
