No disrespect intended to Her Majesty but I donít 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

I had to laugh at this one!.... I live in the UK, and am not not an ardent Royalist,..that being said I have to say I have enjoyed all the festivities here over the weekend...There was a sense of unity of spirit which was good and heartening, and I think everyone was just glad to be off work and having a party!!,....I think Her Majesty would have taken your humour in good heart...:)

a very funny write, i shudder to think of the accounting on the throne.

Your humor at its best. It's a good thing you don't wear a crown. That would put an even heavier weight on those hemorrhoids.

It's all about substance my dear Patrick, if you know what I mean, and I know you do, for you are an exceptionally bright fella at that. I wrote one myself, and dared not to post it, at least you had the courage, good on you, bless ya!

Hey, the Brit's have their customs and, I'd guess they wonder why we slaughter twenty million turkeys once a year. And, really, can one even roughly estimate how many time in one's lifetime one sat on the "throne" and would this include the times one squats onto the thing and the phone rings and one has to pull one's pants up, at least to one's knees so one doesn't trip and fall on one's face, huh?

Nope, it sure doesn't, Patrick. Well said.

I've never followed all the hoopla over the royal family. It's all an accident of birth anyway. I have been reserving all my diamond accolades just for you, my friend. Dick
