DukeIt's not surprising the Prince went to sea:
His Danish side gave him the verve of a viking,
The Greek key unlocked his Odyssian sense of adventure,
And on his many voyages the hessian ropes would tie him
To his German roots.
And what of the humour?
Oh, that was British through and through:
The bloke down the pub,
The man on the top deck of a bus,
The geezer behind a market stall,
The jester at the Royal court.
What was it that another Prince of Denmark said?
'To be or not to be...',
And the Duke has now crossed that celestial sea.
