Platinum Jubilee

Marmalade sandwich?

We your servants wait in glee
to witness your platinum jubilee
we think you truly have excelled
to the point of being overwhelmed

The pomp and hype that you’ve endured
throughout the decades you’ve matured
now you’re solo without your rock
all emotions you dutifully block

Hearts in our mouths that the horses behave
loving that unmistakable royal wave
the booming 82 gun royal salute
Paddington Bear was exceptionally cute

The Mall a sea of Union Jacks
worldwide attention which always’ attracts
the national anthem traditionally played
the horses and men stood on parade

Glinting medals in the midday sun
the booming of the canons gun
trooping the colour in military red
Prince William rode and professionally led

The Queen has reigned for 70 years
God knows how she’s persevered?
constantly watched by the media and press
she surely deserves now a well earned rest
