Vivat rex

When you're the king you see no flaw
in saying your strength's just divine;
if you decree things it's just fine
to say that you're beyond the law.
Now though this sticks in every craw
all you've to do is toe the line
keep silent, never think to whine
and let his lies fill up your maw.
We call that george, and simply wait
to see the king come forth in power;
we know he'll keep us safe and free.
There's nothing for it, it's just fate,
but we've the right to cringe and cower
while nooses hang from every tree.
