Price Paid Over Time


Jealousy, betrayal, revenge,
Royal crumpets and jam

On display in a play
In what the critics call
Fun for the whole fam
And all wrapped up
like nothing you’ve ever seen
Staged in a comedy for the queen

What is known
In the here and now

Nothing more
We search out

Are held in the stars

    1. I did in the golden era, nineties and early two thousands. I used to check in, see the PPV’s and check who had the belts, but I haven’t even done that in years. Do you follow WWE?

      1. Oh yeah, I do follow. I started sometime around in The Reality Era. My father used to watch it on TV. Then my mom also started taking interest in it, and now it is the two of us who enjoy all fights. 😎 🙂
