Carol Ann Duffy have you written a verse
To celebrate the new Royal birth?
It’s hard I know for a child with no name
A tough life in the poetry game.
It’s a tough old job but you took the shilling
Have to show up and look half willing.
We often have jobs that we don’t love
We struggle, get by, just do enough.
You’re busy perhaps with the wedding one?
Big jobs or small they have to be done.
I’d knock something out before the name
They might give him one that’s hard to rhyme.
You know I hope I’m willing to help?
I’m no great poet but can knock out verse
I’ll do my best with a line or two
But won’t be the same as one from you.
