Poems of the Week

Bouquet de Windsor

by Jerome Betts

“Burnishing his green credentials before the Cop26 summit,
it was with pride that Prince Charles revealed that
he runs his Aston Martin on ‘surplus English white wine
and whey from the cheese process’.”
The Guardian

Raise a glass of the bubbly and bright
To Prince Charles and his gallons of white.
As a royal eco-wonk
He employs surplus plonk
For exhaust fumes we sniff with delight.
