The beautiful sculpture by André Wallace looks down on the common passerby
Officially called “Girl on roller skates” a symbol a a rejuvenation that never came
She is more like a Madonna on wheels tending to her flock of jammed car people
Under the beaming green glassy eye of Sauron’s Tower, just across Vauxhall Bridge
At a stone’s throw from the US Embassy and the British Parliament
Can we take the hint?
