Todays main news
“A courtship concluded, a romance of blue hearts,
Oh count the ways how they love,
And the struggles endured that got them here from the start.
Poor Prince and his poor, beloved to be,
Let the country rejoice, with a warm Royal embrace soon to screen on TV”

Some other news for you, before the Weather Mans speech,
The Republic over the water have a bank that’s been breached.
The Afghans are fighting, 15 or so dead,
Now that’s enough of the real world, “lets hear more of new weds”.

With our pockets run dry and our Governments corrupt,
A hurricane is coming that’ll bond and tear up.
Bond us in rage at the farce they’ve become,
Bond us against the greedy bastards that run
Our public service, they’re cutting, “efficiency” sorry,
“Just give me your pin-code there’s no need to worry”.
We’ll tear up their cheque books, no bonus this year,
We’ll tear up manifestos, non-surrealists should fear.

Our social conscience will be given a voice,
And they’ll be forced to listen, they won’t have a choice.

Oh yes my good brother, the day’s coming when we’ll shine.
Just maybe tomorrow, we'll make the headline
