The British royal family has announced that Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, passed away this morning. Philip was 99, only two months from achieving his 100th birthday. His wife of 73 years, Queen Elizabeth II, has a habit of congratulating her subjects with a personal letter on their 100th birthday. In discussing the prince's death, reddit poet Poem_for_your_sprog said:
She looked at the message
she'd crafted and penned -
A letter to Philip
that she'd never send.
