60 GLORIOUS YEARS

This world has crowned a thousand Kings – Though some of them were Queens

But seldom has it gazed upon - Such really futile regal scenes

Does “Fate try monarchs as by fire”? - Not really, nowadays – No.

So due to cost, lets all conspire - To shun this surplus Royal show.

 

For somehow England proudly stands - (Though somewhat threadbare at the knees)

The world ignores her stern commands – Regards her as a piece of cheese.

The embers of Great Britain’s power – Went cold ten years before my birth.

Our England’s dreams and hopes turned sour – Though still we think we own the Earth.

 

The sorts of people who wave flags – (St George was born in Palestine)

Resemble Parkhurst’s ancient lags - Especially when they’re in their wine.

Now I’m not Anti-British – No – For I’m a real “Full-English” man

But costly pageant has to go – and sod Olde England’s “Klu Klux Klan.”

 

Let’s spend our tax on Public Health – Or Drugs and Drink – Or on the Schools

Or let Liz waste her private wealth – To distract and amuse the fools.
