Royals and politicians are no longer dignified
their speech and behaviour are common
so respect has become most difficult

No longer do they behave with noble dignity
too drunk to vote, churlish, with too many affairs,
honour trampled, they embarrass themselves.

The general public want to be impressed
we prefer they exhibit grace and worth
so we may glorify and elevate our leaders
