  All my years of fine schooling should mean
  I can speak for all fish
  When I say their sole wish
  Is their right to sing God Save the Queen!

  Who jet-set to spout new conditions
  For climate renewal

  Their own and the planet's emissions!

  In a video message, the Queen,
  Who on jabs felt she must intervene,
  Said: 'Don't think about you,
  But of others. So do
  Roll your sleeve up and get the vaccine!'

  'What I ain't is a guy with restraint!'
  Said Piers Morgan. 'You know I'm no saint:
  Not PC, never woke
  And I'm proud that I broke
  Ofcom's record for calls of complaint!'

  A whole century isn't a plus
  If it means that for me
  There's a huge jubilee—
  So I'll leave and avoid all the fuss!
