A princess who prances about in the nude
Should realize that cameras she cannot elude.
So naturally, photos, exposed but not lewd,
Made headlines and numerous times have been viewed.

The prince and the princess have rightfully sued.
The cameras did not have a right to intrude;
For even the royals, as they rendezvoused,
Deserved to have privacy and solitude.

At least we know Kate won’t be known as a prude,
Which the pictures give people the right to conclude.
Yet in her private moments, when all is reviewed,
I’m sure that cavorting the princess has rued.

We blame paparazzi, so clever and shrewd,
But their actions quite simply can’t be misconstrued;
For they merely provide what we hope they’ve pursued – 
A celebrity glimpse that can be ballyhooed!

    Dear Ilene Maybe the paparazzi will be after us since we have posted so many poems on the web! If not we can sip green tea and meditate on the holidays. I went into a sukkah briefly. Keep 'em coming! B'Shalom Matthew Anish

    Just awsome monorhyme ilene. I would love to see the morning news shows get a hold of this. They would love it. I wrote a poem about Princess Diana's sad ending called, Look what we've done. Hope you take a look. Once again, this is impressive. Have a great day.

    Oh, and by the way, the title drew me in. But the poem was about a different kind of sin. :)

    This was put together beautifully. The paparazzi go to far, way to often

    I think the paparazzi go too far when they invade the privacy of a celebrity but I suppose they're within their rights legally. However certainly not morally! Hugs, Jack

    Those photographers were responsible for the death of Lady Di. This is a good poem. I have just sent you soup mail.
