You Don't Normally See

Trees growing in full bloom in Westminster Abbey
Policemen with white gloves
Trumpets with flags under them
(Well trumpets at all, actually)
Or streets with no traffic

Crowds waiting patiently for a fleeting glimpse
People singing hymns
Waving flags cheering a kiss
Victoria Beckham travelling by bus
Pavements packed at dawn

Possibly the entire Royal Air Force in the sky
More hats than you had ever believed
Had been created
Prime Ministers overlooked
And ceremonial uniforms

But that depends upon what you are looking for
Doesn’t it?
