Fifty pennies for your thoughts Ma’am?

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Flip it
And does her Maj
Pontificate?

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Or regale us
With the minutiae
Of the rule book?

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Flip it
And does Mrs Windsor
Hold forth?

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Or would her own take
Of a decried decree
Be ruled offside?
