When chrysanthemums grow from your head/
Long before you are even dead,/
And grow right through your hat,/
There’s a reason for that:/
You are probably overly bred…///
Like “ ‘mums”, Hapsburgs are “hothouse fruits”/

Might enliven these Royal “has-beens”/
Generations (like, dozens !)/
Of breeding with cousins/
