Grannies from Gloucester

You dressed like an archetypal

Fifties anglo-celtic school-book granny

With a bonnet, floral white and brown frock

And a poster declaring “Grannies from Gloucester”

Conjuring suffragettes marching into history.

There was solidarity in my heart:

A no coal seam gas Granny on the go so

Gloucester’s river will run green, coursing through the postcard hills

Of our imagination.
