Were primed for Jollification

To quench the thirsty cravings
Of a weary Nation.

With such howls of consternation-

Gets some time on the TV screen

And reminds all that she is queen-

From her rich friends in SanFran
So she’ll remain as party leader-
Even after she expires-if she can...
Well, she’ll still vote............................A++++!...................
