If I was the Queen of the UK

Updated on June 3, 2012

If I was the Queen
of the UK
I would not celebrate
this way

That 60 years
anniversary
costs a vast amount
you must agree

With all that money
spent this way
she could for many
save the day

Just have a look
at London Town
and how that city
has fallen down

Down in the depths
of poverty
opportunities gone
for you and me

But the Palace stands
a royal thrill
while people starve
and pay the bill

For the royal clan
to celebrate
this jubilee
in a splendid way

If I was the Queen
of the UK
I would not celebrate
this way

      Thank goodness for a tad of reality to counteract the tide of Royalist patriot's blindly cheering the abuse of their "subject" integrity after 60 years dedication to a line of inheritance.

      I raise my mug (with no sovereigns head) of tea to cheer you and hope for more of such objectivity,

      Love and Admiration

      Like mother, like daughter! America does the very same thing. In fact, the picture of the homeless man and the one of the street could have been taken here. Both countries have a lot to answer for. Great poem!
