Royal Correspondent

In his finest Queen’s English,
P’s and Q’s in mind,
He eloquently states
And stiffly elaborates,
Using long words
And upright and proper sentences,
Annotating with slow voice
And seriousness,
The somber events
And flag waving celebrants,
Conscripting his yesteryear
And best BBC
To announce
With banner and bow,
Pomp and formality,
The stereotype
Crowning in the matter
Of his Englishness.
