Oyez! Oyez! Oyez!
The palace issued a Royal Decree
to Draco the dragon. "Come to tea!
Make sure you're here by half past three.
The Queen would like to shake your hand."
"Now, you behave, you understand?
came the advice from his old Gran.
"Show her that you have good manners,
no 'Um's" or "Er's" or mumbled stammers -
and don't set fire to her banners!"
Princess Pearl was not a-frighted,
said that Draco should be knighted
and Queen replied "I'd be delighted.
Arise Sir Draco Goldengreen -
by Royal Appointment to the Queen!"
