Waiting for Winnie
In time, Labour ascendant
Winter for the Hosk
came Winston, surly, unto Wellington
and surely crown’d Jacinda Ardern Queen.
The Hosk’s despair was palpable: his mouth
a twisted scream. Let’s laugh at Hosking, Lol.
Jacinda rises —
after nine years, some sunlight:
Hosk melts in spring heat.
