Poems of the Week


by Felicia Nimue Ackerman

“[T]he journalist and royal commentator Omid Scobie makes an enticing promise [to reveal]
‘some of the darker truths at the heart of the institution of the British monarchy…'”
The New York Times Book Review

“Enticing” isn’t what I’d say.
So what if they’ve got feet of clay?
This royal gossip’s so inane
It’s giving me a royal pain.
