royalwedding poem #1

royalwedding poem #1

ah, c’mon.
in the Y lobby this april 29 morn
a guy maybe forty jeans t shirt
who’d got up at five couldn’t find
anything on the tube except “that
garbage” it was on all the channels
just stupid garbage who wants to
watch it anyway well two hundred
thousand people took time for
some joy and pageantry and how
many millions around the planet
there’s little enough to celebrate
in our world right now my eldest
daughter is a british subject I
cherish the years I spent there
the bluebells skylarks good folk
yes I know about colonialism I
know what they did to the irish
I’m irish too but kate and william
I salute your radiant faces may
your marriage be long and happy
oh the Y guy he finally found one
no-offal channel it was, you guess:
sports
