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.
