To commence with an aside,
tried for the rest of his life,
to aquire the Royal Title
for his paramour Wallis Simpson,
Does it make me wonder?
Well, not really.
It all depends who regulates such things?
To which the answer is always
the present incumbent
rather than the previous one.
This almighty tussle of first and second borns
takes us right back to the bible
and Cain versus Abel…
Irish Roi, Latin Rex and Indian Raj are cognate,
which, somewhat incredibly, means, ‘related by blood’!
but that sounds to me more like sanguine verbosity.
Similarly related are Arabic Shah and Russian Tsar…
So, hands up for Chinese Emperor?
No, clearly not.
I know what it is supposed to stand for,
‘Joshua Nazarene King Jew’
but something tells me
we have been led, oh so, sorely astray!
