The day Big Ben landed in Manchester

Piccadilly Plaza, Manchester.

A response by inky

Big Ben lands in Piccadilly gardens, as part of Manchester international festival #MIF21

Among the summer fountains

and stalls for this and that

something from Westminster

landed on ground – Flat

It took local wildlife by surprise

and pigeons they did up and rise

to see this tower – now lying adrift

on their spot they were a little miffed

The fountains spurted in their shock

while seagulls in their turn – did mock

“We thought we didn’t have the power

and now we have to put up with this tower?”

The clock – itself – was quiet that day

as the visiting public made their way

giving the tower some funny looks

as the tower was covered in paperback books
