Socialist Stanza No.9

Royal Appearances


Coronations and jubilees,

Fabulous occasions

Marking Britain’s pre-eminence

Amongst the slew of nations.


Or, such is the presentation,

A vision taken as true

By those looking through spectacles

That’re tinted red, white and blue.


But the bunting is soon faded,

The bank holiday has passed,

And people are trudging along

To work, where the crowds had massed.


A monarch looks down from the throne

Upon all those the pomp fools,

Whilst beyond the orb and sceptre,

It’s capital that really rules.


D. A.
