LONDON BRIDGE HAS FALLEN

London Bridge has fallen
A moon has fallen at noon
London Bridge has fallen
A mighty is at rest in her cocoon
London Bridge has fallen
Will the tears follow soon?
London Bridge has fallen
Clear your eyes to watch her call

II
All will heed to the calling
None will be like stone to swerve this calling
Even this bright London Bridge has fallen
Scattering years of transformation
To create a new transition

III
London Bridge has fallen
She who saw colonial whips
And took freedom trips
Acting Mama to independent cribs
Making them blocks of an old chip

IV
London Bridge has fallen
Leaving behind a head known as a tail
In eyes whose mouths have proclaimed him a fail
Thinking royalty is his only bail
As immortality works to his hail
But his golden ship is set to sail

V
London Bridge has fallen
One who has seen it all
Even her annus horribilis could not cause her fall
And a candle which died in her rain couldn’t soil her hall
She always stood so tall

VI
London Bridge has fallen
After seven decades of ruling
Seeing 15 primers in ministering
All ceremonies controlling
With many highs and lows watching
With some hope restoring

VII
London Bridge has fallen
A fair lady has been called
London Bridge has fallen
Lightning in her thundered call
London Bridge has fallen
Cry her loss, celebrate her call
London Bridge has fallen
A moment of silence till the new king’s call

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
