Premature Application

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.
