My application’s too early – a little bit premature
It seems Carol Ann still wants the job
And there’s not enough cash for two.
Two hundred a year and canary wine
Must stretch the coffers enough
My application’s premature
They don’t need two of us.
They don’t need another Laureate
At least for now, not yet.
So I’ll sharpen up my craft a bit
For now she’s a better bet.
At least I did a poem though
They can’t take that away.
I’ve done my little bit to help
The couple’s special day.
