England A British Empire Built On Primogeniture Poem by Terence George Craddock (Afterglows Echoes Of Starlight)

England A British Empire Built On Primogeniture

Rating: 5.0


what results achieved what future degrees
originated in lusty play in silky mattress
primogeniture exclusive right of inheritance
eldest son takes all all belongs to eldest son

first-born male right of entirety claims
privileged first son takes family titles
parent's wealth estate office everything takes
England a British Empire built on absolutes

all power wealth resources
into hands of one inherited
kept family strong alliances
strong armies equipped ruled

splitting up wealth resouces lands
made vulnerable split weak families
easier to attack conquer divide spoils
invited dark plots invasions chaos
