Brave Soldiers with helmets and swords
Queen Victoria in her crown 
septer and orb in her hands
In bronze and stone
fixed in time and place
Pensive Poets, Passionate Preachers, Prominent Politicians
stand witness to the past
and inform the present

Pedestrains – Mind the Monuments!
Remember the significance of lives lost
Remember or the sacrifices and contributions will be forgotten

Pigeons have no respect
They swoop in with no reverence
Perch on heads and shoulders
Poop on helmets and crowns – swords and septers
Then – without regard or reflection
they move on
