The News

A world of devastation,
with mass starvation,
and genocide and rape ....

But Harry is to marry,
yes Harry is to marry,
and so we all feel great!

Humanitarian crisis,
and a threat from Isis,
and a nuclear test too far ....

But Harry's gonna marry,
yes Harry's gonna marry
a B-list TV star!

There's more austerity,
and rising poverty,
and our heads are all in a whirl .....

Cause Harry's gonna marry,
yes Harry's gonna marry
the all American girl!

That there’s more food banks
let the poor give thanks,
so hide that benefit freeze ....

Cause Harry is to marry,
Yes Harry’s gonna marry.
It’s his latest media tease

But there'll be no revolution
with all this mind pollution,
and we'll all drink to their health ....

Cause Harry is to marry,
yes Harry is to marry
and live out his life of wealth!

    I think that rich or poor, everyone is entitled to love, even a prince and a B list star. If they waited to celebrate until the world is settled ... they'd be waiting a very long time!
    I feel they bring some much needed levity to the situation. Everyone loves a royal wedding and such things are part of history. And ... as far as royals go, I think Will and Harry are using their positions pretty well to try and bring about change, more than is required of them to do.
    Another great and thought provoking piece Mark :-) x

    I for one do not really think about these deeply rooted problems in society because it can be frustrating knowing I cannot contribute anything. It would be easy talking about Harry's engagement.

    You really pull these things off. Just hats off to your great mind and creativity.
