Apology to C Y OConnor

Coal-red eyes protruded from your bust
As we swaggered in mock-bravado.
We were afraid of you Charles
And the shadows you cast
From within cast shadows.

Chinese Apple replacing Adam's
And a terry-towelling cap to repel the '02 sun -
Resurrected in '74 -
It was, Charles, a time of rebellion.

Steel-blue Winfields survey the source
Of your pipe-dream...
How you must detest, yet now, that coinage!
And do you see, Charles,
From your self-inflicted throne
(With inscription below)
That it was no pipe-dream?

Perhaps death has cured your blindness.

I Harbour hope, Charles,
With the wisdom I have gained 
Since '02
Back in '74,
That you see your feats fulfilled...
And mine forgiven.
