Poem for the Royal Wedding

182020D2-ABD1-4BF5-AAD6-B117F3783ED8

It’s three cheers for Harry,

And three cheers for Meghan

Forget about the national state

And celebrate a wedding.

 

Everything’s red, blue and white

Church bells are a-ringing

Everyone is on the street

And all the choirs are singing.

 

Got no time for grumpy folk

We’re overdue a party

Happy tears run down our cheeks

Our cheers are loud and hearty.

 

Politicians all poe-faced

None of them invited

Not been much to shout about

But now we’re all excited.

 

Meghan is a clever girl

Seen her on the telly

Bound to shake things up a bit

And add a bit of welly.

 

William is the one day king

Lesser role for Harry

But he’s found a super bride

He’s no need to worry.

 

Carriage round the Windsor streets

When will they get started?

Band strikes up a marching tune

Couple have departed.

 

Dad is anxious, checks his watch

Glad it’s finally started

Catch the footie on the box

Once the crowds have parted.

 

Harry had a hard time

Now his life looks better

Found a girl who suited him

He’s a lucky beggar.

 

Waspy women from the shires,

Their disappointed daughters

Harry picked a royal bride

From across the water.

 

It’s three cheers from loyal throats

It’s three cheers for Meghan

We all think the Prince deserves

A little slice of heaven.

 

It’s no go the politics

It’s no go the future

All we wants a good day out

And focus on the couture.

 

Enjoy the party while you can

Enjoy the party poppet

Forget what’s coming down the line

There is no way to stop it.

 

We all fell out; we don’t agree

The nation is divided

Today we choose to celebrate

And carefully avoid it.

 

So catch a smile from Harry there

And catch a wave from Meghan

Soldiers in their bright red coats,

A-marching to the wedding.

 

Britain’s got it’s heritage

Our history is behind us.

Days like this we still do well

Against the odds they bind us.
