There has never been a better advert
For abolishing the monarchy—
Competitive mourning and
Police arresting monarchy protestors
Subjects chanting “Long live the King”
Companies espousing paid-for ‘values’
A media PR game for the overruling;
All amidst a severe cost of greed crisis
A convenient distraction?
Meanwhile parliament takes a two-week holiday
Whilst the unwashed masses get back to fucking work you cahnts!
(Except Monday. That’s the Queen’s funeral.)
The price of a short-notice bank holiday.
