Queens!

Queens!

Queen Mary was hairy

Queen Jane was plain

Queen Anne was a man

Queen Caroline was…

… well, a porcupine?

… Queen Sue was not a gnu

“Who? We’ve never had a Queen Sue!”

Oh.

Well, Queen Alexandra was… a candelabra

… Queen Josephine sold paraffin

to a puffin

that had considerably less than nuffin’

Queen Gertrude

(of Hamlet fame)

was particularly rude

to a fellow who interrupted her interlude

(and ‘he’ was particularly lewd!)

As for the kings…

RI, RII, RIII, RIV?

I have travelled the world
In search of the word
Haven’t you heard
About me
I know I sound absurd
But since the time of Richard the
First
I, have had a thirst
For the written word
And even since the time of Richard the second
It’s not quite been what people have reckoned
And Richard the fourth?
Well, he never happened.
