A Eulogy For Anna - Poem by James Hart

My daughter is also my daughter-in-law
She qualified as a solicitor last week
Adamant defender of human rights
But fierce opponent of human wrongs
Her life marked so far by occasions
In which she has shone for
Her determination
Her stand for the right,
Her fearlessness,
Her strength of character
As when she walked out
On the Headmaster of her Public School
Appalled at the way he had treated her
She had no hesitation in giving up
Her status as a Prefect and
Deputy Head of House
Putting first what she saw to be right
And leaving said Headmaster speechless
Happy also to take part in demonstrations
Against Britain’s invasion of Iraq
How will her career develop?
What issue will define it?
The world waits with bated breath.
