The banned old Duke of York.
Criticism for his interview Prince Andrew has met,
It was almost impossible for him to sweat.
Pizza Express in Woking has achieved royal fame,
Used as an alibi to protect his good name.
An adviser had told him to remain in the shade,
To partake in the interview an error he has made.
Plaudits to rescue his reputation he did not receive.
In the interview he came over as being naive.
To persecute him too much may seem really mean,
After all the son of our Royal Highness the Queen.
We all have family members who have made a mistake,
The Royals are humans,just like us,with much more at stake.
He was summoned to the palace by his mum,
A devastating moment for the mother and son.
Andrew's resignation came after the Queen had consulted her heir,
To sack him was the right thing to do, but difficult to bear.
The future of the monarchy was at risk,
The stepping down process had to be brisk.
He now has a fair bit of time on his hands,
But no more funded flights to distant lands.
The banned old Duke of York had his say,
But as a result most of his backers walked away.
On the 2nd of December on Panorama new details will unfurl,
By Virginia Roberts the alleged forced sexual encounter girl.
