Treading the green divots at Cowdray Park,
as the Prince of Wales dons his polo kit,
the County Set hails a future monarch,
born in London to a royal misfit.
After hard riding, players take a drink
in the timbered polo pavilion.
The royal veil lifts to disclose a chink
when Charles makes a private revelation:
“My poor wife finds breast feeding hard going.”
“She’ll soon master it,” say his polo mates,
as tall tales of sporting skills start growing.
Wetting the baby’s head, they open crates.
Diana, sad, neglected mother, pines
tearfully aware of the warning signs.
