The love poem read out by Fergie at Beatrice's wedding recently was by the American E. E. Cummings.
He coined the phrase "The Moon's a Balloon".
Now, however, people are saying the poem should never have been included in the wedding ceremony because Mr Cummings was a racist and a bounder.
If true (which it might very well be), should we be surprised?
He was in his prime a hundred years ago - when almost every white man on earth was a racist and all the very best men (regardless of race) were bounders.
So if anybody doesn't approve of his poetry being read out at Bea's wedding, they can kiss my arse!
