Alphabet Poem #10

The J poem.

Jubilee has been postponed for the foreseeable future

There will be no coronation this day
Her Highness will be in hiding for a while

The jester has graciously stepped in to take her place
He’ll be offering you laughter and a smile

And perhaps a song or two to guide you on your way
which you may sing or hum with every mile

It remains to be seen which part you’ll have in this play
a featured role or a bit part—the substance or the style

It’s going to be a long road—but don’t expect to stay
you’re not a permanent resident, just an exile
