During the 1960's when I was in grade school, I remember there always being a framed photograph of Queen Elizabeth II in every Canadian classroom.
Here is a poem I've written based on those recollections from a child's perspective.
I still like Queen Elizabeth today and admire her strength and tenacity.
And yes, it's obvious, she still is the boss! Too bad, Charles!
Did you know Queen Elizabeth went to school with me?
I’m not kidding as you can plainly see,
Dressed in her robe, a crown upon her head
She’d watch and listen to whatever I said,
With splendid jewels and a fancy gown
She was the best dressed queen in town,
Every morning I’d sing God Save the Queen
I did this each day until I was a teen,
I was nervous of the queen always watching me
So I’d try my hardest to be good as could be,
I tried my best not to make her cross
It was obvious that she was the boss.
