089 Poetry in Mootion

Mr Monkey in front of a cow with a poem written on its black patches Sonnet XVIII on the side of a cow

Location : Piccadilly Gardens, outside No. 1 Piccadilly
Date viewed : 17 August

Someone's crept up on this cow and written poems on it, as part of the Poem for Manchester initiative. As far as Mr Monkey can tell, it has Blake's Tiger on its neck (which makes a change from dark satanic mills, anyway), and Shakespeare's Sonnet XVIII on the rest of it. Mr Monkey wondered if comparing Manchester to a summer's day was a good idea, as he scampered for cover from a sudden shower.
