William S Burroughs: Bugger The Queen

My husband and I
The old school tie
Hyphenated names
Tired old games
It belongs in the bog
With the rest of the sog
Pull the chain on Buckingham
The drain calls you MA'AM

William Burroughs, The Adding Machine.
Written for her silver jubilee.
Probably not his greatest work, but worth resurrecting on this day of daftness.
