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.

About cdsmiller17

I am an Astrologer who also writes about world events. My first eBook "At This Point in Time" is available through most on-line book stores. I have now serialized my second book "The Star of Bethlehem" here. And I am experimenting with birth and death charts. If you wish to contact me, or request a birth chart, send an email to (And, in case you are also interested, I have an extensive list of celebrity birth and death details if you wish to 'confirm' what you suspect may be a past-life experience of yours.) Bless.
