Attention Poets Laureate

Don’t write “rap poems”. If that’s what the job requires, for goodness sakes turn it down. (Or, at least do a better bloody job of it.)

By the way, I side with many of the commenters: it’s embarrassing, and I think it says something about the monarchy that this is what is offered and accepted.

One thought on “Attention Poets Laureate

  1. This is why I believe the monarchy should be abolished. You see what it leads to? I mean, it’s one thing if a teenager writes a rap – he’s a fuckin’ teenager, you can’t expect better than that – but a poet laureate? It’s pathetic, man. Absolutely pathetic.

    You think Henry VIII would have taken this? Hell, no. He’d’ve had the poet AND his son’s head off before sundown.
