I plan to keep both Kemmer's and Gregory's poems.  Nice!

Subject: [Milton-L] another on the same

To any who object to or are sick
Of baby talk, The Guardian online
Provides a means by which one may decline
The babble Babel; one need merely click
"Not Royalist," there, upper-right, and quick
As grids of liquid crystal realign
The day's headlines appear without a sign
Of "Boy or girl?" or "What name will they pick?"
"Not Royalist"!  What once required defense
In passioned Latin to all Christendom,
What severed Charles' head from Charles' trunk,
After it rent a bloody and immense
Divide in Charles' kingdom, has become
A website toggle.  How our world has shrunk!
