‘To the Media in America’ by Jane Blanchard The Society December 5, 2014 Culture, Humor, Poetry The British are coming! The whole fourth estate Must wear what is smart For William and Kate. The British are coming! Men, watch how you dress: A jacket and tie Should lead to success. The British are coming! So, ladies, look nice: A suit, pants or skirt, Would likely suffice. The British are coming! Shun clothes à la mode: No denim, no fleece, Could meet royal code. The British are coming! Three days at the most, Don proper attire Or end up as toast. Jane Blanchard lives and writes in Georgia. Her work has recently appeared in Blue Unicorn, Mezzo Cammin, and Third Wednesday.
