Global Kerfuffle

Global Kerfuffle

A Poem by barleygirl
"

the upcoming royal wedding . . .

"


Ever since last year’s presidential reshuffle
we’re always on the verge of a global kerfuffle
our previous chief is the preferential truffle
but the current clown is our disgrace to muffle.

Over in the kingdom where protocols are prim
the chances of a top-level invitation are slim
unruly protests with flaming effigies too grim
would spoil a royal wedding so polished and trim.

But our truffle and the younger prince are mates
though upcoming nuptials not an affair of states
“who will be invited?” -- a query that clearly baits
the world waits as our moody child marinates.

Anyone with a sense of humor gleefully admits
we await an Obama summons from the Brits
so we can watch the white nationalist dipshits
huddle at Mar-a-Lago to brandish their glitz.

I’d never suspect an event so complex
In a thousand of years could wring out such tears
Not tasteful cheek dressing by mother of bride,
But rained out in petulance by the father of pride
(Who can't go unasked )
Cause he might well be tasked
(So upsetting to ease)
With a request, most common to guests,
“Invitation, please.”

I absolutely love your sense of humour. Wouldn't it be marvelous darling if the Obamas were invited to the festivities and The United States favorite a-hole wasn't? Ohh please!! Please!!

Take care -- Dave

Couple of years back now, I met Prince Harry at a fundraiser in aid of Help for Heroes. It was only a brief moment but I can well see why Meghan is so smitten, he's gorgeous; (as is she,) and I truly hope they will both be blissfully happy for the rest of their lives.

As for invites, it's anybody's guess and I bet there's a lot of political head scratching and hand wringing going on behind the scenes. :))

Donald's presence at the wedding will be a covfefe! We should advise Meghan to extend an invitation to the Obamas to join the bridal party, after all it's an international affair, best show of her country's most liked truffle!- querida Margie, um beijo
Feliz ano novo.

Royalty is a myth. I treat it as such. Your opening stanza is filled with mirth. I love your invention of words I never heard.

A Trump, Harry, and Meghan wedding.
Can it get any better than that.
We just need that little North Korean guy, and it's a full house. Wonder if they lost my invite.

ouch. interesting problem - hadn't thought about the implications. at least we know it will be interesting and "news worthy" if Trump attends and a great opportunity for him to put his foot in his own mouth. probably do less damage on the golf course ...

Loved your little "digs" in this one, Margie, but like the Chump, I feel I should at least be invited, otherwise I'm not going - not even as a pageboy.

Hello, barleygirl! :)
This was a lot of fun and great use of words. My mother sent me an article about this issue. It's so dumb, but you know Donald's feelings are hurt. Haha
