An effigy too far






An effigy too far

Leave a memorial,
The hotel was told
So it did a conscientious job,
Outlining every detail-
Including a lager can.
If the commission
Had been in Britain
The likelihood is that cultural sensibilities
Would have been more sympathetic;
What may be a fitting tribute in Jamaica
Led to shock and condemnation
Plus, a full refund from the travel agents.
