When Meghan Met Harry

Edward Lear in a poem said
"O let us be married!
Too long we have tarried!"
but we cannot say that
of young Prince Harry.
The people now know
that he marrying a gal
by the name of Meghan.
We have been told
that she is a divorcee
(and older than he)
but they haven’t disclosed
if she is a vegan.
This royal is
as sharp as a razor
and is proving to be
a trailblazer.
He succeeded in doing
what Edward VIII
clearly failed to do.
Some say it is a rum do
how he managed to fix it
and think it’s a ploy
to soften the effect of Brexit.
The royalists feel joy
that the event will take place
but young Turks maintain
that all the opulence
is a slap in the face
of the working class.
