LONDON, April 7 (UPI) -- Britain's poet laureate, Andrew Motion, is in a royal wedding dilemma trying to craft a commemorative poem with a non-offensive rhyme for Camilla.
None of the obvious words, such as vanilla, flotilla or Godzilla are appropriate, as Motion has pledged never to "mock, deride or criticize" the royal family in his poetry, the New York Times said.
Among poetic peers and critics however, Motion's work appears predestined for mediocrity.
"Every single time, it's an impossible job," said The Times Literary Supplement editor Robert Potts. "One's not entirely clear why anyone bothers to do it."
