TMR fMark Campbell, "Ode to the Coronation", (06 May 2023)

On this auspicious occasion of the coronation of "Their Majesties" Charles Philip Arthur George and Camilla Rosemary, TMR is delighted to present an "Ode to the Coronation" by our good friend and priceless contributor to the podcast Mark Campbell. Should any listeners in the UK (or Commonwealth, I suppose) have any qualms about about saying —— "I swear that I will pay true allegiance to Your Majesty, and to your heirs and successors according to law. So help me God" —— when "invited" by the Archbishop of Canterbury, we offer the choice words below as a fitting substitute.



Ode to the Coronation

by Mark Campbell

King Charles the Third

Sings charms for Thora Hird

Trims gnarled poorer birds

Grins upon bearded agora curls

Slimming sweary fedora furls

Winning sweaty fen-loving fronds

Winsome warty feng shui

When summer's wings fly by

Blending sooner, lest he cries

Friending schooners and Benny Shaw

Building bath tubs in Lahore

King Charles the Third!
