The whole thing is a nonsense

The royal family

Obsession with these people

To the point of cruelty

To have your life so scrutinised

As a public domain

Idolised and vilified

A senseless hurtful game


A head of state can do the job

And represent us all

Like they do in Ireland

Seems to go quite well

And you can have a private life

Far from the madding crowd

And live a normal nine to five

For crying out loud


The tabloid press are criminal

They live to bring you down

Intrusive is the game they play

They are the game in town

Photographs and gossip

Keeps us entertained

Build them up and knock them down

Then we start again
