No street parties around here!
With the eyes of the world on Windsor
And Gaza, Syria and North Korea have a day off
They’ve invited some commoners to the wedding
To share a crepe and aperitif with the toffs
Yes, they are a modern day royal couple
Prince Harry marrying a mixed race divorcee
Buck Palace is going in the right direction
And you can watch it on Sky or the BBC
So, the Big Questions of the day
What will they wear, what will the starter be?
Who will walk Mehgan down the aisle?
I do hope you’re not losing sleep
But when most of the populace won’t care
And the Windsor beggars are forced off the streets
Because the cost of a royal wedding dessert
Could feed a family of four for a week
No doubt the world will wish them their best
And fawn over the joy they will give
But for the majority of folk that I know
It’s a reminder of how the other few per cent live
And it will be just a snip at £32 million
I hope that includes a new hat
Some folk near me wanted a street party
But the food bank wouldn’t stretch to that!
