How Do You Solve A Problem Like Camilla?

Topic: 

British Poet Laureate Andrew Motion has a tough assignment; to write a commemorative poem about Prince Charles impending nuptials to Camilla Parker Bowles. New York Times has the story.

I love National Poetry Month (though it should be longer). It looks like there's only a National Poetry Day (maybe a week--Google was inconclusive) in England. Maybe England does need an anti-laureate, or an anti-poet. It's just so cruel, not to be able to use "gorilla" as a rhyme for Camilla...I don't think it any of it will end up as "poetry in motion." Forgive me--I am weak.
