Three Kings of the LNP

We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar.
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.
So it came to pass that a child was born. Not just any child was to be honoured but "the birth of a baby boy, the Prince of Cambridge, to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge." The child had a royal title and reported weight (8 pound sixpence) before it even had its own name. Sort of like a thoroughbred horse really!
So the three wise men who ruled queensland deemed that their citizens owed gifts to the distant child. However unlike biblical times they could now just do it by a media release. No need to cart gold, frankincense and myhr halfway around the world.

Brisbane shall be lit blue for the boy! Trinkets shall be distributed to babes born on the day! Oh? It was actually not even that day in Australia?
O star of wonder, star of night,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect Light
Fuck you Austerity!
