Margaret Thatcher and the press
Gave each other a lot of flack.
Journalists 'round her did possess
Lots of foreign knic and knac -
Like tape recorders from Japan,
Italian suits and U.S. stuff.
She ordered a foreign made ban.
The Iron Lady could play rough.
'Buy British' was her hot campaign,
Till the press caught her on a trip.
Her fervor then began to wane,
As the press let a tidbit 'slip.'
To the Falklands, she did embark,
Her hair rollers made in Denmark.
