‘Wheels of History’ (roll on)

As Regal carriage borne through crowds of yore
Now buoy’d by timber frame of ‘Mary Rose’
King Henry’s pride sails on as ne’er before
To Parliament; where yon said river flows
From flagship of our famed ‘Trafalgar’ fleet
This Crown was carved in ‘Victory’ (held high)
To sit atop in ‘leaf of gold’ (replete)
A sight for sure, twud catch Lord Nelson’s eye
Sir Isaac’s law bears fruit in sim’lar vein
Of splintered form; as gathered from that tree
Within design forever to remain
All held in place by force of gravity
Fragmented ‘Stone o’ Scone’ doth here unite
Known lineage of realm; tis wondrous sight
