"Such pageantry's cert'nly becomin' 'er,
As my bride-to-be's hot,
(Though I dare say there's not
As much as some think of my Mum in 'er)."
Said the Chancellor of England's Exchequer:
"Young prince, have no royal home-wrecker;
For your troth, once avowed,
Brings the touristy crowd
To Big Ben and the red double-decker."
Commerce takes a holiday in London and Limericks, as the world turns to affairs of the Heart and of State. Britain's Prince William and his fiancée Kate Middleton will join together in holy matrimony at 11:00 AM tomorrow in Westminster Abbey, broadcast live at 6:00 AM in New York and 3:30 PM in Mumbai. In Sydney, it's already over.
