[A new poem about Henry VIII, my first real foray into limericks]
I was inspired to scribble this bauble yesterday, after seeing the latest barrage in the Battle of Bitchy Banter between @KngHnryVIII and @richard_third on Twitter. I must say, Henry could use some Tudoring with his poetry. No ear at all for metre, at least where limericks are concerned. He should stick to his ballads.
I might have to begin a new cycle. I’ll be signing them this time, and backing them up to my Dropbox.
Henry’s are cute, but rather bumpy. Not bad for an amateur. I’m only talking about his technique; I leave you to judge the content for yourself.
VERO NIHIL VERIUS
