Prince in Blue Genes

“Prince Charles Fears Genetic Disaster” (Daily Mail, 17th May 2000)

We read in the paper Prince Charles is dismayed
by science and scientists wrecking the place.
"A bloomin' international disgrace"
he said, then knelt down and prayed.

It's something to do with the way that genetics
are tinkered with, reproducing some freak
reproduction whose nature and chin are too weak
to understand human aesthetics.

One look at his family's history's enough
to tell that a simple genetic disaster
occurred when Queen Vic was spliced by her master,
Prince Albert, all proud, in the buff.

And thus Charlie's mum and Philip the Greek
are both blood relations of Vicky and Bert,
whose seed is widespread amongst the inert
royal families of Europe's shit creek.

Poor Charles, self deluded, sounds almost ironic
as he preaches on genes and how they morphose.
He is, in his pomp, like a king with no clothes.
We'd cry if it wasn't so comic.
