She’s eighty-nine years of age So wise she’s quite a sage As long as she’s sane Long may she reign I do hope she draws a good wage She married Prince Phillip who’s Greek His gaffes sometimes make him a geek When he opens his mouth His brains they go south The Queen cringes when he starts to speak They live in London in a palace so grand The finest royal residence in the land Waited on hand and foot I guess they will stay put Crowds are entertained by a marching band Prince Charles is King in waiting His mother’s reign he is berating Banana skins on the floor Superglue on the door Some hope he will never be King He married Camilla Parker Bowles She loves to drive off in the ‘Rolls’ Before he was married to Di Camilla had caught his eye And now his heart she controls Contest: Long Live The Queen Sponsor: Judy Konos 05~09~15

Thanks so much for dropping by - just went for a fun write but I have to admit I think the queen is incredible and at 89 years old and still working an amazing role model for many:-) Hugs jan xx

Ha ha this is a great gentle parody on the royals. I like to read about them so I found this entertaining. Camilla does seem to be such a gold digger,  a crown digger I must say. Hey dint know the English queen married a greek wow. What a blend of royals eh. And that pic of her youth is the most glamorous portrait of hers that I ever saw. And I did giggle at the king in waiting line. Hey prince williams got the heir right? I do wish his princess doesn't become anorexic bulemic like Pretty Diana. I tink she looked real lanky in one pic.The paparazzi affect them I feel. Kudos.

It was meant to be a tongue in cheek tribute lol:-) Seriously she is an amazing woman - 89 years old and still in control and working for the country she loves so much... long may she reign I am not a Charles and Camilla fan so would love to see William as King in due course:-) Hugs Jan xx

Long indeed may the Queen live and long may Jan write and post . . . smiles and laughter is her wealth she shares with her humble and sometime unruly subjects!! 7

I had to have a bit of fun here Connie - the Queen is a remarkable lady - still ruling at 89 years old ... personally I would love to see William as next King and i know there are many who feel the same. I think Catherine his wife is the best thing to happen to the Royal family in years:-) Hugs Jan x

Fine Limerick set in write of the Reign. Not my Reign, for it's your words rain from the page with aplomb. As Dave says, I concur, and we pay you nothing from our taxes, for it's you that enriches us. Hugs girl as I bow, James xxx
