Et voila! ... Well when doing 2 hours of ironing there's not much else with which to occupy the brain, though they're not particularly good:


The Duke of Medina Sidonia
Really could not have been lonlier.
"I'm a soldier not a sailor so I'd really much rather,
Not be at sea, and in command of the Spanish Armada".

Meanwhile,

Lord Howard of Effingham
Was rather partial to quaffing ham.
But he refused to eat jambon
Lest it came from Palma, the Don.

Lady Jane Grey
Was queen for a day
Till she gave a loud cough
And her head it fell off

Better than I could do, MM. Like the Parma ham bit.


Henry of Anjou
Was a rotter through and through;
Lizzy the First showed him the door
After he called her a "Public Whore" .

Shocked

(He did too: in a fine example of Gallic gallantry he referred to his possible royal bride as a "putain publique".)

Edvard Grieg
Sailed south two thousand miles and a league
In mind to palm trees, dates and Moroccan food
The desert setting of 'Morning Mood'

Composer Georges Bizet
Said it wasn't that easy
"À créer operettes
Au sujet des cigarettes!"

The late Donald Campbell
With speed liked to gamble
Did OK with his car
With his boat went too far

Young master Moyes
When given new toys
Spent many a day with 'em
But just couldn't play with 'em

But now knows what one really incurs
