Cakes and Balloons: The Queen's Birthday Poem

Published in Poetry

The Queen's Birthday Poem

Cake and balloons,
Cake and balloons,
Can’t you see they’re brainwashing you?
They want you to love the privileged few,
So they give you a flag
And cake and balloons.

Why do they do it?
They’re brainwashed too.
Newsreaders, teachers,
Royal dragoons,
When they were young
Got cake and balloons.
