A Royal Burial!



Down, falls as corpse from throne, 
A genuine body, of which is the soul 
At the ebb of  migrating to eternity.
The soul very rightful with its body 
Legitimate stood straight for the welfare 
Of Nature’s inhabitants, inert and alert.
 The ones that enjoyed the highest collection
Of assiduous concern,
Which that personality has maintained
 For his beloved lovely progeny is,
As always,the witty astute shrewd  man.
Procured the Time Manager,
The articles required; 
Assembled them and positioned
In places apposite, for a royal burial
Of the priceless expiring body, 
With commendable honour.
On observing  the rites and rituals,
Keeps ready, the manager Time,
A well-built coffin to cremate
 The massive twelve feet  two O sixteen
And is going to enthrone gracefully
As the ruler of ours two O seventeen.
