My Own Diamond Jubilee
By Patrick A Granfors

No disrespect intended to Her Majesty but I don’t get all the hoopla over this 60 years on the throne business. Counting my potty training, I can make the exact same claim.

Sixty years have come and gone

That’s three score on the throne

And though I wear no studded crown

At least I’m not a drone

 

A hundred thousand visits

To the porcelain chair I’ve made

But I’m certain that I never

Would expect a diamond accolade

 

Thrones of different shapes and sizes

Seat a variety of rears

Pomp and circumstance aside

We commoners too have all the years

 

A diamond jubilee for the common man

With no intention to be mean

Sixty years of sitting on the throne

Does not require you to be the queen
