DARK CLOUD

Friday May 18. Weekly Murray Hartin poem recited by Alan Jones on 2GB.

A tongue-in-cheek look at The Royal Wedding.

The last verse refers to the internet mania over a recording where some poeple here "Laurel" and others hear "yanni".

 

DARK CLOUD

Friday May 18. Weekly Murray Hartin poem recited by Alan Jones on 2GB.

A tongue-in-cheek look at The Royal Wedding

I woke up at five,

More dead than alive

So a quick jog to start off the day

A stretch of the legs

Cup of tea, toast and eggs

Then a shower and I was okay

 

Turned on the TV

And was shaken to see

Just two words “Dark Cloud” on the screen

What was the score

Were we talking World War

I was thinking “What else could it mean?”

 

Maybe Kim Jong and Don

Were not getting on

Prompting threats of a nuclear hit

With them playing God

You could shorten the odds

And I started to panic a bit

 

But don’t be afraid

My fears were allayed

And now I’m as happy as Larry

It appeared that the heading

Referred to the wedding

Of Meghan and charming Prince Harry

 

Forget World War III

This is bigger you see

So Karl and Georgie are in London town

Plus Kochie and Sam

And the ABC clan

To check out just what’s going down

 

The media throng

Is 5000-strong

If a Royal there sneezes its news

And they’re now taking bets

On the Queen’s wedding hat

And you can get 2/1 about blue

 

The Dark Cloud, not so black

Referred to the fact

Meghan’s Dad won’t be there on the day

And with that information

There was some consternation

As to who would give Meghan away

 

Is it news? Maybe not

Have we all lost the plot

The Republican interest is nil

But look, it gives us a break

And a welcome escape

From the ramblings of Malcolm and Bill

 

Now Alan, about yesterday

I just have to say

And I don’t want to cause a big quarrel

But hearing you on the Trannie

I swear I heard Yanni

 

But on the telly I swear I heard Laurel
