There seems to a rise in the number of British films in the industry when I was picking a film to watch this week. And I am so glad that I have picked “The King’s Speech’ over some comedy. It is a wonderful film about guts to go for the best— touching grounds in mainly aspects of upbringing, education training, life and political history.Certainly life has its twists of fortunes. Or you could view it as a misfortune for the duties of a war-time King were that of an enormous stress that shortened the King’s life. Compared with his elder brother, the former King Edward VIII, he bravely took upon the duties despite his stammer. Colin Firth really played the part of the King very well. He deserves the Oscar.

King George VI was cured by Lionel Logue, who wasn’t exactly professionally trained speech therapist by training. King George the VI wasn’t even close in line to the throne, and neither did he know he was going to be a great king.

I was scribbling my poetry when I was watching the film ‘The King’s Speech’ on my mobile. Some of the parts came from the movie. It was fun.

Mutter No More
Beyond the Stammer
Beyond the minds of fear
No shit  No Bugger  No bloody f@*-k
For guts and heart
Serve the nation best

King George the Sixth
Was saved by
Lionel Logue
Whose know-how was
From his life’s experience

Everyone has a voice
Everyone has the right to achieve
Bravest with the most undying perseverence
Constant hop and bellow
After yells in stammer hell

Till one coronation day
Won the day
Kissed the book
Signed the Oath
And he was King

In times of crisis
In this grave hour
Bounce over your fear
Leap and bloody be heard
And thou shalf long live like the King !!

Ok, I’m done with my poem. Enjoy!

Elfinic Cool break rules
Refuse immorality
Make this course their own
Firm, Calm and united
Dark days and war can no longer confined

In a battle of guns and bombs
But reverently commit our cause to god
We shall prevail
Only if we chose to face hard truths

And with guts to overcome unwise complexity
In a way the world should be grateful
Of his presence instead of Edward the VIII
For Bertie’s words were simple in virtue
Steadfast in duty

Silent bravery against bombs
Remain in put without the fear of sinister raids
Performing the usual duties
And become Britain’s respected King!
