A broken heart laid on the floor,
And there it stayed to beat no more,
Life is too cruel, and people's core,
Is mostly rotten, trust, What for?

I like these Queen's Jubilee Celebrations poem very much, although more than 121 years ago, it is still update and not obsolete. William Topaz McGonagall was born of rather poor Irish parents in Edinburgh, Scotland, in March 1825. In his nearly unreadable, rambling biographical notes1, one eventually learns that he sprang from a family of five children and that he worked with his father as a handloom weaver. Look, and WOW! What a poem!
