O'Mann thanks Prince Lazarus; accepts post

Your Highness, Prince Lazarus:

I am extremely honored by my Royal appointment as Poet Laureate of New Utopia. It is not an honor I take lightly. I know that New Utopia has been your passion and your dream for many years; to grant such an opportunity to a relative newcomer takes a leap of faith and princely understanding. This I appreciate.

I will request the application for citizenship from Susan and send in all needed materials; I look forward to receiving your letter of appointment and official documents.

For the glory of New Utopia,

Angus O'Mann
Poet Laureate of New Utopia

O'Mann appointed Poet Laureate (!)

[This is an historic day. For once, I am at a loss for words.]

The Principality of New Utopia
From the office of Prince Lazarus

Dear Mr. OMann,
I thank you for your kind words, both in rhyme and e-mail messages.

I had not considered that New Utopia needed a poet. Having said that, perhaps we do.

Susan has persuaded me that I should name you to the post of Poet Laureate of New Utopia and grant you citizenship in our new country.

Send the application and your picture for the passport, I will have prepared a letter of appointment which will be sent with your other documents.

There will be no official compensation, but I should think that sales of a book of verse would do well through the shops of New Utopia. We might even offer it for sale our web site for you.

I offer my apologies for the delay in responding, but it is getting quite busy now.

With warm regards,
Prince Lazarus

Here is a poem I have been working on, called an Anthem for New Utopia. Also can be sung. I hope you and Prince Lazarus enjoy it.


Anthem for New Utopia

Pioneers of New Utopia,
On these platforms strong we stand,
Anchored firmly in the sea floor,
Joined together, hand-in-hand.
Wheresoever you may roam,
Love, oh love your island home.

They said we were deluded
Yes, insane we all must be,
But here we are unitedIn a paradise at sea.
The sunrise wakens in the East,
The Western sunset brings us peace.
May the good Lord bless our island,
Keep Prince Lazarus from harm!

May our people live united,
Strong in soul and strong in arm!
Justice, Truth and Levity,
Health, Joy and Longevity!

Hello Angus,
Thank you very much. I will show it to Prince Lazarus when he returns on Tuesday. I think it is lovely.

With warm regards,

Ms. Wright:

I had attached my submission as a Microsoft Word document in the email I sent moments ago. In case you have trouble opening it or files with attachments get blocked, I have also pasted the text below. Thank you again. Angus

Oh, New Utopia!

For Prince Lazarus & Queen Maureen

Oh beautiful for tropic skies!
Pink shells and coral reefs!
Seabirds above, bright fish below.
While ‘round us dolphins leap!

New Utopia! New Utopia!
Our paradise at sea!
No get-rich scheme, it is a dream
Come true for you and me!

New Utopia! New Utopia!
Flotilla of the free!
Where all relax and pay no tax
Or social security!

Afloat beneath the azure skies
Our hospital of fame!
Led by our Queen, the shy Maureen,
They heal body & brain.

New Utopia! New Utopia!
Our health spa of the sea!
We traded fears for health & years
Of increased longevity!

New Utopia! New Utopia!
Liferaft of Liberty!
Prince Lazarus, watch over us
And keep us strong and free!
