Jubilee Street Party

Jubilee in June got well under way,
Just an excuse to all get together,
Jolly festivities on ev’ry day,
Jovialities despite bad weather.

Under our red, white and blue umbrellas,
Unusually gay, we dodged the rain,
Up went gazebos built by our fellers,
Usual barbecue weather again!

Neighbours could celebrate Queen’s Jubilee,
Nothing could be too much of a bother,
Neighbouring folk that met at the party,
Normally never knew one another.

Each street closed so we were able to roam,
Even the children played games in the rain.
Eventually, when they all went back home
Ev’rything went back to normal again.
