God Will Not Save Your Queen - Poem by Francis Duggan

I must tell you mister God will not save your Queen
For obviously her better days in life she has seen
And she is a mere mortal just like you and i
So sooner if not later she is going to die.

Instead pray to the Reaper her life for to spare
Not that the cold one does pay heed to prayer
On the life of your Queen he will have the last say
For her just like us there will be a last day.

Disrespect for your Queen i have no wish to pay
For as a person she does seem quite okay
And though she is well famed beyond her home shore
Just like life's breath life and fame are not forever more.

'God Save Our Queen' is a song you may love to sing
But God will not save her as he would not save a King
You should sing to the Reaper the one who claims from all life's breath
Though he would still not spare her from her dark grave of death.
