When Julius Caesar Crossed the Tamar.


When Julius Caesar crossed the Tamar

The Senate, like Victoria,

Was not amused.
When Byron swam across the Tamar – and died –

He, too, like Victoria, 

It was said,

Was not amused

To catch a cold

And end up dead.
He should have dried,

After crossing the Tamar,

And before he died.
