The Duke of Plouck sent out his spies for the information they might bring,
For he and the Duchess were on their way to visit with the King.
The King always liked it best when the Duke brought news of a plot,
He always enjoyed the conspiracy whether there was truth in it or not.
The Duchess of Plouck went to the shops and gathered the latest fashion,
Because she knew that with the Queen, clothes were her fondest passion.
So the two of them started for the castle loaded down with dresses and guile,
To see the King and Queen was their aim and to visit with them for a while.
Both were happy to have something to share as the Duke had uncovered a case,
And the Duchess of Plouck fondled her gift that was made of satin and lace.
The ride to the castle passed quickly by because they were on a mission,
And thoughts of praise and huge rewards became their fondest vision.
The Duke and Duchess were faithful subjects to the King in deed,
And any talk of wealth was understood because royalty will always reward greed.
