What fools these anarchists be.

There once was a man called Assange
Whose name did not rhyme with mélange.
“You must say it,” he said,
“Not like ‘mange’ but instead
“Like the Congolese river, Ubangi.”


The Burghers of Calais, a Poem

Don't worry, the Queen kept King Henry from killing them.

Said the Burghers who lived in Calais
“We’ll surrender the city todais.
Out we’ll come with the keys
In our French BVDs.
Tell King Edward: Don’t kill us! Okais?”
