1008 The Two Georges 06-11-2021

King George III,

born to monarchy

whispers a wish.

It becomes a royal command.

It is accomplished.

General George,

issues an order,

and given the independent attitude

of the Continentals,


the order is carried out,

after discussions,

fter elections,

after the vote,

and maybe the battle’s won.


given our history,

the battle’s lost

but the tired army escapes,


to lose again tomorrow,

until they win,

8 years later,

The General says farewell.

The king says,

“I wasn’t aware one could do that!”.

There is a plot to make the General a king.

He puts it down.

He becomes President.
