A minute’s silliness for the queen

For what might have not

and what might have been

I give you a minute’s silliness

for the Queen.

.

Corgis to the left of her

Corgis to the right,

Corgis in the morning

all day and all of the night.

.

She rained for seventy days,

and a few odd years,

and, eventually, the son came out –

though that eventuality was long in doubt.

.

Now she has gone

to take a rest

her crowning glory,

she passed the test,

.

and the rest is history,

and the rest is silence,

one minute for us,

an eternity for her majesty.

.

Not that silly,

she had a serious side,

but with a sense of humour

she ruled with pride.

.

God rest you ma’am.
