A Boxing Day custom that’s really unpleasant
Is how British Royals still shoot at a pheasant,
The old ones can’t help it; the practice is rooted,
But for all the young ones it needs to be booted.
If I have grown up through when those who game hunted
Are not now admired, but leave one affronted,
Then, as a loyal royalist, I must demand it
That Royals, anti-hunting, should now all command it.
It was most disappointing to read that the princes did the traditional hunt at Sandringham on Boxing Day this year. Like foxhunting, this is a barbaric tradition that should be lost as soon as possible.
