The English Civil War

On Whose Authority?

 

Considering an age-old problem, I

Regarded the content of a film that

Observed the difficulty of the Fat

Measuring the Slim, when taxed to the sky.

Who can say what’s right for every guy?

Either the common man becomes a mat

Lining leaders’ halls or an autocrat

Living like the apple of his own eye.

 

Oliver Cromwell faced a decision

Like that, when his king asked for more money:

Instead of meekly giving permission,

Vilifying the English monarchy,

Enacted a Protectorate, a schism

Resulting in civil war/anarchy.
