Majestie

Loyal greetings to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth
From her devoted subject on the occasion
Of her Diamond Jubilee
We do like a bit of Royal
Mail
Family
Wedding
Household
Jelly
Ascot
Automobile Club
Society
Leamington Spa
Mint
Navy
Air Force
Not Army
Marines
British Legion
And plenty more besides
We enjoy your lightness of touch
And hands off approach to ruling;
Your Christmas Speech never fails to please
It is a shame about the Empire ~
All of those hot countries unable
To prosper outwith the gracious
Pink purview on which the sun
Eventually set
Anyway I hope that you are
Able to spend some quality time
With your corgis and splendid stamp
Collection and that you will soon
Be blessed with more Royal
Grandchildren
And please please do not
